Fun Stops – Iowa Arts Festival and Iowa City Jazz Festival

Fun Stop Applications

Fun Stop booths are perfect for nonprofit organizations and community groups to share information about who they are and what they do. These booths must include a hands-on activity for people of all ages and enhance the festival experience for our attendees by providing opportunities to engage in artmaking and/or creative play. Fun Stop organizations must provide their own tent, weights, tables and chairs. No electricity is available.
