Witching Hour is a two-day annual festival that explores and engages the unknown, discusses creative process, and unveils new work in a range of disciplines and practices. Witching Hour welcomes thinkers, makers, and participants from a wide breadth of mediums and industries. Each presentation, performance, or event must directly address one of our core programmatic themes - exploring and engaging the unknown, creative process, or new work. At its best the festival will feature a remarkable mix of artists, writers, filmmakers, musicians, comedians, scientists, technologists, cultural philosophers, community builders, innovators, and social entrepreneurs that inspire us to explore our own creativity and compel us to engage directly with our community.


Witching Hour is presented at venues including: The Englert Theatre, The Mill, Gabe's, the Iowa City Public Library, and FilmScene.


Presented by The Englert Theatre and Little Village Magazine

Sponsored by Surly Brewing Co. and the Iowa City Public Library
