Rock the Block & Food Truck Tuesdays Will Return This Summer
There will be no shortage of live music, food, and fun in Cedar Rapids this summer!
NewBo City Market has announced the return of several different events here in Cedar Rapids these next couple of months, including Rock the Block, Meet Me at the Market, and Food Truck Tuesdays.
First up is Food Truck Tuesdays, which officially returned this week. Every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. through the end of August, various local food trucks will be set up in the parking lot and on the lawn of NewBo City Market. The venue is asking that you abide by social distancing rules at the event.
Next to return will be the concert series Rock the Block. That event is going to work a little differently this year. According to NewBo's website, the lawn will be split up into squares. The squares will be 8x8 and can hold up to six people. You can claim one of these squares by purchasing season tickets, tickets for a specific date, or by taking your chances and showing up to the event.
Season tickets are the most expensive option of the bunch. You can purchase your square for $300 through June 3rd via Eventbrite. That guarantees you a spot at every Rock the Block concert for the entire summer. If you'd rather purchase squares one show at a time, those will cost you $20 and you can make your reservation a week prior to the next show, also using Eventbrite. For those of you wanting to just wing it, any un-reserved squares will be available for free on a first come, first served basis. The first show will happen May 28th with The Full Circle Band.
And finally, Meet Me at the Market will return on Thursdays beginning June 3rd at 6 p.m. The website says, "every Thursday from June through September, community members can meet in the Market Yard at 6 p.m. for free guided walks, runs, bike rides and yoga classes."
