"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

Studio U Photography

One of the earlier storefronts to open in New Bo after the flood, Studio U Photography offers a wide range of services, including weddings, high school senior portraits, babies, family sessions, and other corporate/event photography. Owners and Iowa natives Heidi and Troy Eiffert opened the NewBo studio location shortly after moving to Cedar Rapids after operating a studio in Omaha.
 
Drawn to the historic charm of Valley Junction in West Des Moines and the Old Market of Omaha, Heidi and Troy knew they wanted that same experience after moving to the Corridor. When they found the building they’re currently in, Troy knew that “[This was] where it was going to happen.”
