Experience live performances, connect with community resources and hear from city leaders about what’s next for Cedar Rapids.

In June 2008, the landscape of Cedar Rapids was forever changed. Cited as one of the largest natural disasters in US history, the 2008  flood is now recognized as a turning point in major community development and achievement. After ten years, two media outlets have captured the flood story from day one, and will now work together to host this milestone celebration for all to enjoy.

 

While attending the June 13 event, guests will experience live performances, connect with community resources and hear from city leaders about what’s next for Cedar Rapids. The schedule will include:

 

  • 4:30pm-Community Showcase. Live music and entertainment, along with community stations for guests to learn about achievements since 2008 and learn about upcoming events and initiatives.

 

  • 6:00pm-Live Program. Hosted by Bruce Aune and Beth Malicki, the 90 minute live broadcast will feature interview-style segments about the rebuild, system and development milestones, along with performance by local representatives from the arts, culture and entertainment sectors.
