5th Street Social Returns in 2024
5th Street Social will not take place in 2023. Instead, you’ll find parts of our 5th Street Social favorites taking place during 4thFest in early July 2023, at Coralville's 150th anniversary events throughout 2023, and when Coralville hosts RAGBRAI on July 28, 2023. We hope you’ll enjoy all these other great events happening in Coralville in 2023! 5th Street Social will return on August 10, 2024.

Time: 4:00-10:00 pm

Celebrate family, friends, & the dog days of summer
As the days edge towards the end of summer, celebrate friends, family, and neighbors with a block party festival on 5th Street! Coralville's 5th Street Social celebrates the street dances of the 1950’s by featuring music, food, local brews, children’s activities, and a classic car show and shine.
This annual event began in 2016 and is held on the second Saturday in August.
