Tickets go on sale at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, June 1, 2021, for the fifth annual Farm to Street Dinner hosted in partnership by the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department, the Iowa City Downtown District, and Johnson County Government. 

The dinner will take place Thursday, August 19, outdoors on North Linn Street in Iowa City. This unique event supports the local food economy, while bringing the community together to share a delicious, six-course meal, using locally sourced ingredients prepared by some of Iowa City’s most talented chefs.

The first Farm to Street Dinner was held in 2016 after a partnership between the three organizations was formed to increase awareness of local food being used in local restaurants, and as a way to generate funds for a non-profit that works with local food in Johnson County. Money raised this year will support Eastern Iowa Young Farmers Coalition. 

Tickets are limited to this event and can be purchased for $125 per-ticket online through the Downtown District's website. Sales will begin at 7 a.m., and will go quickly. The event has sold out within 24-hours in the past. 

RSVP to the Facebook event for updates and reminders. For more information, contact Farmers Market Coordinator, Tammy Neumann at, or Downtown District Director of Special Events, Christopher Hunter at
