Sidewalk Sales

July 19-22, 2018

Each year in July the sidewalks are filled with tables and tents for Downtown Iowa City’s Annual Sidewalk Sales, a tradition that began in 1968. Shoppers come to experience the three-day savings extravaganza, which begins on a Thursday and runs through the evening on Sunday. A long standing tradition of the Iowa City Downtown and Northside Marketplace, there’s no better way to see the best of what downtown merchants have to offer.
