"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!

Business Spotlight

ECO LIPS: 329 10th Ave SE

The story of the District business Eco Lips started in the early 1990s, when Andrea Danielson began brewing small batches of natural lip balm in her Cedar Rapids kitchen for her friends and family. She took great care in handcrafting the balm and packaged it in small amber glass jars to preserve the freshness of the pure ingredients. Andrea didn’t realize that by giving a sample of her natural lip creation to Steve Shriver, her life would be changed forever.

Having larger than average lips, as Steve self-describes, he was continually searching for a better lip balm. When Steve met Andrea in 1995, he immediately fell in love with the lip balm, and moments later he also fell in love with Andrea. They were married in 1997, and Steve, a lifetime entrepreneur, quickly spent Andrea’s life savings on ingredients and packaging for the couple’s first product, Hemp Lip Buzz.

By 2003, Steve and Andrea had built a private label body care manufacturing company called Raining Rose, named after their first two daughters Hadley Rose, and Lindsay Rain. Andrea and Steve decided to sell Raining Rose to focus on growing the Eco Lips brand. Read More
