"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

If you can believe it, we have welcomed 20 new businesses to our Main Street District since the begining of the year. Talk about a growing, thriving community! Celebrate and enjoy the new places in our community to shop, eat and gather.
-Jennifer Pruden, Executive Director
