Military Tribute Banner Program

The Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival is proud to launch the inaugural year of 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 2021!

“This new initiative is a wonderful way to pay tribute to a veteran or active military person in your family this holiday season by purchasing a banner in their honor” states Freedom Festival Executive Director, Carissa Johnson. “We are excited to see the streets of downtown Cedar Rapids filled with these Tribute Banners. Recognizing the people who helped make our freedoms possible is an integral part of the Freedom Festival.”

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