Local Companies to Help Produce RAGBRAI’s 40th Celebration Prior to RAGBRAI Headquarters announcement of the location of their 40th Celebration, they collected quotes from national production companies in an effort to help produce what was to be their largest community visit and celebration ever. When the Cedar Rapids RAGBRAI team learned that Cedar Rapids would be the location of this large-scale event, participating staff at Economic Alliance asked that RAGBRAI Headquarters offer the same opportunity to Cedar Rapids production companies—to provide a competitive service quote and share their resources. We were thrilled to find that RAGBRAI Headquarters were pleased with the results, and that two local Cedar Rapids companies have been chosen to help produce RAGBRAI’s 40th Celebration Party on the Island on July 27 in downtown Cedar Rapids!

16th Avenue Music (225 K Ave NW, Suite E) has been hired to do the stage production for the Counting Crows, while Rausch Productions (1936 51st Street NE ) has been hired to provide the additional LED screens needed for our funky venue and the production associated. About the companies:

16th Avenue Music This year marks 16th Avenue Music’s 20th Anniversary! Their doors opened in 1992, offering audio and show design work for local musicians. In the nearly 20 years since then, they’ve grown dramatically and now work as an international production company providing sound, lighting, design, content and video production services for concerts, fashion and trade shows, private and corporate events, and more.
