Downtown Summer Shop Crawl

Fri, Jul 31, 2020 from 3pm - 8pm

This event has passed.



After a discussion with the Downtown retailers, we have made the decision to cancel the Summer Shop Crawl set for Friday, July 31st. Given the current circumstances of the pandemic and spike in COVID-19 cases in the area, we want to ensure the safety of our attendees and staff at our wonderful shops. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but are hopeful we will be able to host a Shop Crawl in the Fall. Because of the cancellation, those who have purchased tickets will receive an email with a couple of options on how to proceed.


The Iowa City Downtown District is back with another Downtown Summer Shop Crawl this Summer! In May there was a Virtual Shop Crawl, but with recent restrictions being lifted and businesses allowed to re-open, we invite you to join us in person for an evening of fun summer drinks and great shopping at our unique downtown businesses. The Downtown Summer Shop Crawl will be on Friday, July 31st from 3:00–8:00pm and will be the perfect opportunity to enjoy the beautiful summer weather and exclusive shopping deals for ticket holders. To accommodate social distancing guidelines, shops may have a capacity limit on how many people can be in their store at a time. We have extended the event time to give attendees the chance to shop at multiple stores given the circumstances. We highly recommend attendees wear masks during the event to protect themselves and others.

A ticket purchase will include a customized glass, an ICDD tote bag, a downtown Iowa City headband, and access to the sales and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic will be available) at each participating shop. This event is for all ages. If you are under 21, you will still receive a customized glass and there will be non-alcoholic beverages for you to enjoy, such as lemonade, soda, and more!

Tickets are $15.00 and are limited to only 150 tickets! The past Shop Crawls have continued to sell out, so make sure to get yours while supplies last! Online ticket sales will end at 11:00pm on Thursday, July 30th.

Stay tuned for a list of participating shops and their drinks and exclusive deals!


*Please note: This is a rain or shine event. There will be no ticket refunds.
