Hotel Info

The SHERATON Iowa City has rooms available and that is where the FUN will be, and in 2016 we sold out of rooms at the special reduced FARM rate, so book early!

However, if you are a last minute booker and the Sheraton is unavailable we suggest the Hotel Vetro next door.

For 2017 we’re thrilled to bring FARM back to the Sheraton in beautiful and vibrant downtown Iowa City.  Meals will be served just next door at the Hotel Vetro.

NOTE: We STRONGLY recommend making your reservations early. You can always cancel. We can not guarantee room availability.
