SATURDAY, JUNE 24TH 5 – 11 P.M.
The first annual Downtown Block Party will be Iowa City’s biggest night event, and it is happening from 5 to 11 p.m. Saturday, June 24th throughout 7 blocks and the pedestrian mall downtown. It is an all ages event, so those 21 & older wishing to partake alcohol throughout will need to purchase a cup. The approach to the event will be one of inclusivity, openness and a general welcoming to everyone.
Downtown will be closed to vehicle traffic from Clinton St to Linn St & Dubuque St to Iowa Ave to make way for an estimated 15,000+ people. Entertainment will include local musicians, dueling pianos, ping pong tables, giant jenga, video game tournament, sand volleyball, DJ competition, silent disco, interactive art project, light painting, alleyway movie, and much more!
*Please note: This is a rain or shine event. (There will be no ticket refunds.)
