Downtown Summer Shop Crawl

Friday May 19th, 4:00 - 8:00pm

The Iowa City Downtown District is excited to bring back the Downtown Summer Shop Crawl. We invite you to join us for an evening of delicious drinks and great shopping at our unique downtown businesses. The Downtown Hot Cocoa Crawl will be on Friday, May 19th from 4:00–8:00pm and will be the perfect opportunity to sip on some seltzers, sangrias, and spritzers, and have access to exclusive shopping deals for ticket holders. This event is for all ages. If you are under 21, you will still receive a customized glass and there will be non-alcoholic beverages for you to enjoy!


  • A customized shop crawl glass
  • A surprise swag item
  • ICDD tote bag
  • Access to sales and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic will be available) at each participating shop
  • Entry in a drawing for a chance to win gift cards from participating businesses – this has totaled to over $1,000 for past Summer Shop Crawls!

Tickets are $15.00 and are limited to only 300 tickets! Past shop crawls have consistently sold out, so make sure to get yours while supplies last!

Stay tuned for a list of participating shops, deals, and tasty drinks!
