"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.
Cedar Rapids is in a period of unprecedented urban and civic renewal. Two of our city’s most unique and important neighborhoods are playing a key role in this rebirth – Czech Village and New Bohemia are fast becoming the city’s flagship district – a magnet for citizens, tourists, and businesses, and a venue for the area’s most exciting events, entertainment, dining, and shopping.
Our Czech Village/New Bohemia Main Street District is becoming a hub for innovation! So many technology companies are re-locating or getting their start right here in our neighborhood. The arts and entertainment culture, as well as the many local dining and housing options make this a vibrant place to work and play. Take a look at some of the “Czech Tech” thriving in our district.
