Iowa City Sand in the City Schedule, Team Info


The sand has been delivered and the weather is looking great: It's time for another annual Sand in the City in downtown Iowa City.

The event is based on competitive teams building complicated sand sculptures on a closed street in downtown Iowa City. The event kicks off with the sculpting tomorrow, but will continue with additional events all weekend where you can come see the sculptures as well as enjoy kids activities, music and food. Look at our gallery of photos from last year.

Here's the schedule (via Summer of the Arts)
