Townsquare Media has postponed the Cedar Rapids Baconfest 2016 event scheduled for Saturday September 24 at New Bo, due to the Cedar River flood warning that will impact the downtown area this weekend.

The event will be rescheduled to a later date to be determined.

Instead, this weekend our staff will be volunteering our time to support the city's flood prevention efforts. We are asking for you to consider joining us in these civic efforts in support of our community.

Here is partial list of organizations that you can contact to volunteer:

  • United Way
  • American Red Cross
  • City of Cedar Rapids

We will continue to update you as the situation progresses. Stay up to date on flooding conditions in the area here.
