"An Arts & Culture District in the Heart of Cedar Rapids!"

About The District

The Czech Village/New Bohemia Main Street District was formed in May of 2009 to breathe economic life into a historic area of Cedar Rapids. Established by emigrants, the District had suffered economic decline for many years and was nearly destroyed by record flooding in 2008. Despite these hardships, courageous business owners and residents began the task of rebuilding.

Optimism is evident throughout our District. Construction is prevalent and new investments are announced regularly. The creative cultural community has embraced the District and their events bring new and return visitors who spread the word about our exciting improvements. We are confident that the consistent application of Main Street’s Four Point Approach will transform Czech Village/New Bohemia into Cedar Rapids desired location to live, work, and play.

 

From the Director’s Desk

Whenever I meet new people or reconnect with old friends, they ask “What’s the big event or big news right now in The District?”.  I’d like to take this opportunity to share with all of you some of my favorite picks each month.  These may be small wins, big exciting news, or little known facts. They are definitely worth sharing!
-Jennifer Pruden, Executive Director

Business Spotlight

Great American Popcorn Company: 1121 3rd St SE

The Rieckhoff family has deep ties in Cedar Rapids with connections to several local organizations. Owners of a vegetable farm (Morgan Creek Fresh Produce), they were selected to be the vegetable vendor for the opening of the NewBo City Market. After researching several public markets, Bill and Robyn found popcorn and ice cream shops are some of the favorite vendors around the country. Coupling this research with the desire to teach their children about business ownership. Sydney, then age 14, started the Chill ice cream shop, and Carter, then age 10, started CR Popcorn. When the family had the opportunity to graduate from the NewBo City Market’s incubator program, they found the perfect spot in the historic Jacobs Buidling with enough space to make popcorn on-site and expand hours to 7 days a week. The kids combined their businesses to form Great American Popcorn in June of 2014.
