About The Soul & Blues Festival
The Soul & Blues Festival is a reworking of the former Iowa Soul Festival. Like its predecessor, the Soul & Blues Festival celebrates the music, dance, food and art of the African and African-American communities that has influenced the culture of the United States as a whole.
This event features local, regional, and national artists. Enjoy live entertainment, soul food, African-American inspired art, Fun Stops for the kids, and much more!
Transportation and Parking
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.
