Military Tribute Banner Program


The Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival is excited to continue for a 2nd year, the Military Tribute Banner Program, proudly sponsored by Hills Bank! These full color banners will showcase veterans and active duty military personnel on select light poles throughout downtown Cedar Rapids during the summer of 2022!

The cost of each banner is $250, which includes the design and printing of the banner, installation, maintenance and gift to recipient at the end of the display period. A map of where each Veteran’s banner is located will be available shortly after they go up.

2022 BANNERS ARE SOLD OUT! In order to get the banners printed and installed by June 1st, we need to close the reservations for 2022. If you are interested in being added to the wait list for 2023, please send an email to We anticipate the pricing to stay the same in 2023.

If you have interest in donating to the “Honor A Veteran” fund, donations can be mailed to: Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival, 609 1st Ave SW, Suite 102, Cedar Rapids, IA 52405. Beginning in 2023, we will reserve a number of banners for this priority. If you know of a veteran you’d like to nominate, please send us an email at!
