Mission Creek Festival is a 3-day music and literature festival that takes place every spring in downtown Iowa City, Iowa. The festival thrives on intimacy and visceral connections between artists and audiences. We host events indoors at traditional venues and local shops converted into performances spaces solely for the festival.

The program champions independent-minded musicians and writers–some are well-known, some are underground, some are emerging, and all of them are singular. Inspired by our producing organization’s values–The Englert Theatre–we promote voices across ethnicities, cultures, and experiences that reflect the diversity of our community today and where it is headed in the future.
