About The Soul & Blues Festival
The Soul & Blues Festival is a reworking of the former Iowa Soul Festival. The change in focus celebrates the Black experience through the local and global reach of Soul & Blues music.
Like its predecessor, the Soul & Blues Festival celebrates the music, dance, food, and art of the African and African-American communities that have influenced the culture of the United States.
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.
