Mission Creek Festival
Starts Tuesday, April 4 through Sunday, April 9, 2017

Mission Creek is dedicated to delivering a riveting 6-day artistic experience for our community that builds on the cultural geography and capital of downtown Iowa City. Programming focuses on music performances, literary readings, film screenings, public lectures, local food culture, and educational outreach. Nestled in the heart of downtown Iowa City, with most venues within a five minute walk of each other, Mission Creek thrives on intimacy and cross-medium experiences, turning music lovers onto new literature, writers onto new music, and expanding appreciation of arts, community, and culture. The smallest festival venue fits 50 people and thelargest holds 1800; but most rooms are in the 200-300 capacity range, allowing for visceral connections between artists and audience.

The festival is presented and produced by The Englert Theatre, Iowa City’s 104-year-old historic performing arts organization.
