Children's Global Village:  
Sunday, June 4th from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

The FUN Zone on the Pedestrian Plaza will be filled with booths representing different countries and cultures.  Kids visiting the booths will be able to participate in activities designed to teach them about other countries!  They can pick up a passport and have it stamped at each booth in order to go into a drawing for great prizes!

We are currently seeking community members, Boy/Girl Scout troops, church groups, student organizations, and any other groups that wish to share information about another country to festival attendees.

The deadline to apply is March 27, 2017, a limited number of spaces are available.

FUN Stops

This year's Iowa Arts Festival will feature something for the kids to enjoy as the adults make their way through the festival.  We will have designated FUN Stops at various locations within the FUN Zone in the Pedestrian Plaza as well as throughout the art fair in downtown Iowa City where kids have the opportunity to do something fun as families make their way through the festival. 

·         FUN Stops will be set up throughout the festival where kids (and adults) can take a break and enjoy a fun activity!

  • Keep an eye out for more information on the different organizations and businesses who will be hosting the FUN Stops this summer!
