Dubuque’s Dances with the Stars

The Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce’s Dubuque Dances with the Stars 2024 will be held on Sat., June 8, 2024, at the Mississippi Moon Bar located inside of Diamond Jo Casino.

Since its inception in 2010, Dubuque Dances with the Stars has raised more than 2.5 million dollars for over 100 local nonprofits. DBQ DWTS targets a community-wide audience to highlight, educate, and create awareness of nonprofits’ role in our community.

Guided by our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility, the Y is dedicated to giving people of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity.
