Mission Creek Festival

Mission Creek Fans,

Since we last wrote, the public health situation in our area has intensified.

With sadness and resolve, we must announce that Mission Creek Festival 2020 will not carry forward in its current form. As such, there will be no public events during the April 1-4 period.

We are working with festival artists and authors to set up a special Mission Creek event in the late-summer/early-fall. We plan to have details early next week including:

The dates and lineup of the new event A list of artists who will not be able to make the new event. At that time, we will also have information regarding exchanges and refunds so that you can make the choice that works for you. As a nonprofit organization navigating a challenging period, we are extremely appreciative of any patron who donates the cost of their ticket in lieu of a refund, however, we understand that is not always financially possible.

To discuss refunds now, please call our box office at 319.688.2653 during normal hours (Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday 12:30 - 5:30) or email

We are grateful for your support of the festival and the arts in our area. We are sending our love to our community, artists, and staff.

Sincerely, Andre Perry Executive Director

Mission Creek Festival is an intimate festival experience in downtown Iowa City each spring with most venues within a 5-minute walk of each other.

Thriving on immediacy and cross-medium experiences, we turn music lovers onto new lit, writers onto new music, and expand everyone’s appreciation of arts, community, and culture. We embrace live performance, literary arts, and radical community happenings.

We are the music festival with deep literary roots, the literary gathering with music and other happenings tucked around the edges, and the cultural experience that rivets both locals and visitors.

The festival is presented and produced by The Englert Theatre, Iowa City’s 105-year-old historic performing arts organization.
