It's on-sale day for the NewBo Music Festival. We are so excited for this show. It's the coolest spot in Cedar Rapids for the first large-scale Alternatve music fest in the city. And, we'll make it an annual event!

Young the Giant and Allen Stone headline this 6-band jam August 8. We're closing streets around NewBo City Market and rockin' the block. These bands are two of the hottest in the industry. And they are set to play in the shadow of Mt. Trashmore.
