SATURDAY, JUNE 27TH, 2020 5 - 11 P.M.

Join us for the 4th Annual Downtown Block Party! The most anticipated event of the year is back and you won’t want to miss it.

With 42,00 attendees last year, this year is sure to be better than ever before. For 2019, the event is expanding its offerings and footprint to take over all of Clinton Street! That means more outdoor fun, more activities, and more entertainment. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy the summer weather in the heart of Iowa City and experience downtown in a whole new way.

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 (presale) or $11 at the event tickets will be purchased, this will buy you the official event wristband and cup that will allow you to walk around the event with beer or wine – ONLY guests with these materials (event wristband and cup) will be allowed to do so. Wristbands only need to be purchased if you are consuming alcohol. 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.
