Mission Creek Festival returns live and in-person on April 7 – 9, 2022, presenting an array of world-class and local artists and writers to celebrate the finest of music and literature. Playing a combination of Iowa City’s most vibrant indoor venues, pass holders have a wide selection of shows and events to choose from.
What is Mission Creek?
Mission Creek Festival is a 3-day music and literature festival that takes place every spring in downtown Iowa City, Iowa. The festival thrives on intimacy and visceral connections between artists and audiences. We host events indoors at traditional venues and local shops converted into performances spaces solely for the festival.
The program champions independent-minded musicians and writers–some are well-known, some are underground, some are emerging, and all of them are singular. Inspired by our producing organization’s values–The Englert Theatre–we promote voices across ethnicities, cultures, and experiences that reflect the diversity of our community today and where it is headed in the future.
Experience Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 in Iowa CityJune 10 - July 10th
The Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 red frames, each in the shape of a small house, set alongside one another will be placed in three main areas of the pedestrian mall. Inside each “casa”, there is a swing and a ring of lights lining the bottom. When the house is empty, the lights glow dimly to welcome the next visitor. Once someone steps inside, the lights release a more powerful glow, indicating that someone is home.
