The culinary event of the fall returns next week with the largest number of participating restaurants in 12 years — 50 menus to be featured
Taste of Iowa City, presented by MidWestOne Bank, returns to Downtown Iowa City on Wednesday, August 28th from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. The 12th Annual Taste of Iowa City celebrates the culinary diversity of Downtown and Northside restaurants by welcoming and introducing attendees to smaller sample-sized portions available from 50 different restaurants. This event is supported by the University of Iowa Welcome Back Week programming.

“The event each year grows in attendance, menus, and entertainment. This is one of the most fun and easy events to attend. It is completely open to anyone and everyone, all you need to do is purchase tickets at one of 7 ticket booths and wander around finding where you want to spend your tickets,” said Director of Events, Christopher Hunter. “The success of this event is for many reasons, we have an amazing sponsor, MidWestOne Bank, who has continued to support the event each year, the University of Iowa Student Life has been on our planning committee and has placed this event on the official roster for Welcome Back week, and of course our restaurants pour their all into preparing and presenting their favorite menu items”, said Hunter.

Tickets are $1 /piece and will be sold in strips of 5. Tickets will be available during the event at 7 ticket booths located in Downtown and the Northside Marketplace OR at the MidWestOne Bank location Downtown.
