About Friday Night Concert Series

Summer of the Arts invites the community to come out and get to know great, local entertainment! Running mid-May through August, this festival kicks off the summer season. We return this year to the intimate stage (and shade) of the Ped Mall.

Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy free, live entertainment.

What to Bring

Bring chairs, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, and maybe even your dancing shoes!

In Case of Rain…

*In the event of rain, the Friday Night Concert Series will move to the Chauncey Swan Parking Ramp on the corner of Washington and Gilbert Streets in Iowa City. Enter from Burlington or Court Streets, bring your lawn chairs, and find us set up in the lower level where the Farmers Market is normally held.
