How is this event different from other downtown Iowa City events?

  • This event is at night! The focus will be on the evening hours.

  • $10 tickets will be purchased, this will buy you a the event cup that will allow you to walk around the event with beer or wine- ONLY these cups will be allowed to do so.

  • This will be the ONLY event approved by the City of Iowa City to allow for alcohol to go from bar/restaurant to street

  • We are partnering with the City of Iowa City, the Iowa City Chamber of Commerce, ICAD, Iowa City Public Library, and other groups within the community to engage others through this event.

  • The event will focus on our existing business economy.

  • The event will have a very open feel to the layout. Programming will be spread out to allow for a comfortable feel and relaxed crowd flow
