Hosting Your Event.
NewBo City Market has a number of exceptional spaces for you to hold your events, from the wide-open Market Yard to the impressive Rotary Hall. Our building is an active public market inside a renovated manufacturing plant, offering a unique mix of industrial and green spaces. You can set up tents on the grass space or parking lot in the Market Yard, present a concert on our outdoor stage, enjoy cocktails on our covered patio, or host a formal dinner inside Rotary Hall.
Our unique and flexible spaces can be transformed into the perfect venue for almost any gathering! We are conveniently located a few blocks from downtown Cedar Rapids and just minutes from I-380. Contact us today for a custom proposal for your event and receive a free charcuterie tray for your event!
Cater your event with delicious, fresh food from our Market Shopkeepers. With over a dozen food vendors, we’re sure to have the perfect options for your celebration. Choose a full meal from one of our restaurants or provide a spread of hors-d’oeuvres showcasing a variety of ethnic cuisines.
Guests can enjoy a cold pint of Iowa beer or a glass of local wine with bartending services provided by NewBo Beer and Wine. We’ll work with you to have your favorite brew on tap from Iowa breweries such as Toppling Goliath, Big Grove, Iowa Brewing Company, and Wilson’s Hard Cider.
From a seated reception to a casual networking event or an outdoor concert to a festive holiday party, our spaces can be transformed to fit your needs. Our events team will work with you to create a layout individualized for your event. Equipped with banquet seating for 140 and additional cocktail tables, a built-in sound system, and an eighteen-foot projector screen, we have everything you need for a successful event.
