This holiday season the Downtown Holiday Market sponsored by UICCU, will become a 5-week pop-up shop center, featuring rotating retail occupants each week. These one-of-a-kind temporary structures were locally designed by Sanjay Jani with AKAR Architecture and will be placed in Black Hawk Mini Park from Black Fridayuntil the end of December. The Holiday Market evolution will just be an addition to the various holiday events hosted Downtown Iowa City including: Small Business Saturday, Retail Open House, Horse Drawn Trolley sponsored by Hills Bank and Trust, Santa Saturdays, and the Gingerbread House Competition. In addition to downtown retailers occupying the spaces, other programming elements will be happening scheduled including a Gift Giving Information Shop ran by experts from Downtown Iowa City.
