Market After Dark

Market After Dark is one of Downtown Cedar Rapids' largest, free, open-air events. Featuring a variety of vendors mixed with lively stage and street entertainment, Market After Dark 2019 saw a record attendance of 50,000 people! This event brings a unique atmosphere to Downtown Cedar Rapids with food, beer, wine, art, entertainment and creative placemaking displays.

UPDATE: 2021 Market After Dark conversations are active with the city, county and public health officials about the viability of having an event like this one. Major modifications to a traditional Market After Dark would be necessary because of the global public health crisis. A decision will be made and announced at a later date.
