SHOP HOP: Visit a curated selection of the city's best vintage stores offering mid-century finds. Past shop hops have always included Iowa Mid-Century Modern's anchor stores Funky Finds Vintage & Retro, AOK Antiques, and Atomic Garage. In addition to the anchors, the hop includes rotating guest stores and pop-up vendors.
HOME TOUR: Our annual home tour showcases several stunning examples of mid-century architecture and interior design in Des Moines. IMCM has organized home tours in Des Moines since 2013 and brought you the IAF home tour in Oskaloosa in 2018. In the past, we have featured homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and other prominent architects. Not only do the tours provide excellent architectural examples of the era, but they also exhibit how to bring mid-century styles to homes of every decade. Proceeds from past tour ticket sales have benefited the Iowa Architectural Foundation and Habitat for Humanity. Tickets are required to attend the home tour. Join the mailing list to be notified about ticket availability for the next tour!
COCKTAILS: After the home tour, join other mid-mod enthusiasts at a specially selected retro bar. Included with your home tour ticket is a free drink ticket.
