One week of art is what the Mission Creek Festival in Iowa City, Iowa, promises its guests for its annual spring event. It’s not many festivals that would put radio personalities on the same poster as hip indie music artists, but that’s the atmosphere at this festival which features literature, film, music, food and many more attractions. This festival was founded to promote the arts in the eastern part of Iowa state, and its many events are held throughout the town in locations like retail stores, restaurants, theaters, bookstores and many other unique venues. Everything is set up to be walkable, and some events are individually ticketed, while many are free. This festival’s history reaches back decades to an event in San Francisco that was brought to Iowa in 2006, taking advantage of the many venues located near each other in the city’s downtown.
