About The Iowa City Jazz Festival

Come down for a three-day weekend of live jazz performances and delicious dishes. On Friday evening at 9:30pm, enjoy a fireworks display over the University of Iowa Pentacrest.

You’re sure to enjoy the music from all four stages, which showcase a variety of well-known jazz musicians and up-and-coming talent alongside national and international artists to encourage and educate a jazz audience of all ages.

Bring a blanket, chair, or come sit in our beverage garden and get ready for a weekend jazz extravaganza!

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.
