The Iowa City Downtown District is excited to announce the return of the Summer Shop Crawl for its second year! Tickets for this event will go on sale at 9 a.m. Wednesday, April 19th and will sell out quickly, so make sure to purchase your tickets today. The event will take place at various downtown businesses on Friday, May 19th from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m.

“We are so excited to be bringing back the Summer Shop Crawl for its second year,” said Mary Besler, Assistant Director of Operations for the Iowa City Downtown District. “This event was such a big hit the first year, we knew we had to do it again. In fact, from the first year’s success we have developed a number of targeted shop crawls for specific groups that happen throughout the year. As always the intent of this event is to get customers out shopping at their favorite boutiques downtown or ones they have never been to!”

The purchase of a $10 ticket includes a branded glass, a {made} community bracelet, entry into the gift card basket raffle, and drinks, appetizers, and sales at all of our 22 participating businesses. This event is for all ages, so if you are under 21 you will still receive a branded glass and there will be non-alcoholic beverages at each store.
