"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
