Since June 2008, the landscape of Cedar Rapids has experienced a renewal that few could have predicted. Once 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. Cedar Rapids has become a model for recovery that other cities look to emulate. After ten years of hard work, it’s time to celebrate the spirit that made this an Epic Rebirth.
Join The Gazette and KCRG-TV9 for an afternoon into evening honoring the various sectors that have contributed tireless resources to creating the Cedar Rapids we enjoy today. Guests will enjoy live performances, connect with community resources and hear from leaders about what’s next for Cedar Rapids.
