Party In the Park- Mercer Park

Grab your lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy live music, games, arts and crafts, and frozen treats at Party in the Park this summer. The 2018 season opens June 7. Events are held weekly from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in June, July and August and will continue on Sundays in September from 4-5:30 p.m. Additionally, there will be several dates this season that will feature a special performance by the Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre at 5:30 p.m., before the Party in the Park begins. The Iowa City Public Library Bookmobile will be on hand on Thursdays, as well as representatives from various City departments who will share information about their areas of expertise. Party in the Park is a no-fee event and is open to the public.

Sponsored by the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department and the Neighborhood Outreach Division, Party in the Park gives residents a chance to enjoy their summer evenings outdoors with friends and family while exploring the City’s many beautiful natural spaces and neighborhoods.
