About The Iowa Arts Festival

The Iowa Arts Festival is an award-winning, weekend-long community celebration featuring over 110 local and national visual artists. On Saturday and Sunday, we feature high school and college artists in the Emerging Artist Pavilion. But that’s not all: there are music performances, food vendors serving regional and ethnic dishes, and creative, educational activities and entertainment for children. The Iowa Arts Festival is the most anticipated art event of the summer!

Most Iowa City, Coralville, and University of Iowa bus routes come in/through downtown, so there’s always an option. Please note that the festival does impact bus routes, so check their websites for more information. Check out Bongo for GPS-based, real-time trip planning.

There are four parking ramps in downtown Iowa City providing over 3,000 parking spots! Find out more including detailed locations and cost by clicking on a parking ramp below:
