"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.

Director's Spotlight

“Take advantage of the local exhibits and summer programming as it comes to an end in September. As we look forward to the crisp days of autumn, there is a fun fall line-up coming to Czech Village – New Bohemia. Keep an eye on our event calendar for music, art, fitness, networking, and a first time ever: Cedar Rapids Halloween Parade, right here in our district. “
