FUN Stops

This year’s Iowa Arts Festival will feature something for the kids to enjoy as the adults make their way through the festival. We will have designated FUN Stops at various locations within the FUN Zone in the Pedestrian Plaza as well as throughout the art fair in downtown Iowa City where kids have the opportunity to do something fun as families make their way through the festival.

FUN Stops will be set up throughout the festival where kids (and adults) can take a break and enjoy a fun activity!

Keep an eye out for more information on the different organizations and businesses who will be hosting the FUN Stops this summer!
