On Friday, Dawson Hollow and The Halfloves will be headlining a special, expanded evening of music as part of the NewBo Market’s acclaimed Rock the Block concert series. Dawson Hollow is an indie folk-rock act coming down from the Ozarks to grace the Bankers Trust Stage as part of their national 2018 tour. The Halfloves, heraled as “the best currently active rock band in Iowa,” will be playing a set of indie-rock with pop sensibilities. Folk musician Tim Riven will be opening beginning at 3pm.
On Saturday, local bands will claim the stage for 7 hours of music while street performers, buskers, and much more will be turning the NewBo Market campus into a bohemian menagerie. Experience some local improv, listen to spoken word art, and even join in with some hula-hoop artists as they wander the yard. When you’re ready for a break, wander through our outdoor pop-up marketplace and purchase some local wares. Then, join in the
NewBo Community Chalk Art Project and help us turn the Market parking lot into a gallery of chalk art created by our community.
On Sunday, mosey through the NewBo Art Festival and then stop by NewBo Non-Profit Fair. See what our incredible local non-profit organizations are bringing to the community and learn how you can get involved! Music will be played from the Bankers Trust Stage.
