With today’s temps reaching nearly 90 degrees – it’s hard to not get excited about summer! There is something special about summertime in Iowa City.
Here’s a list of a few of my favorite events that are summertime staples in Iowa City (in my humble opinion!).
- Friday Night Concert Series (a personal favorite) – Fridays from 5/19 to 8/25 6:30pm. A list of performers and more details: Friday Night Concert Series Event Website
- Iowa City Farmer’s Markets – Wednesday 5pm-7pm, and Saturdays 7:30am – noon (running until 10/28) at the Chauncey Swan Ramp on the 400 block of Washington Street. This one is a favorite for my kids and grandkids! Kolaches, donuts, cookies, breakfast pizzas…hard to beat it. Iowa City Farmer’s Market Website
