McGregor designated an Iowa Cultural and Entertainment District


The Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) has designated McGregor an Iowa Cultural and Entertainment District, a distinction that recognizes well-identified, walkable, mixed-use destinations with a high concentration of flagship cultural facilities. (Photos by Audrey Posten)

Live music (pictured here at Jade’s River Queen) is common in McGregor, and the city’s Triangle Park hosts a variety of events, like the Great River Car Show and Cruise. Those activities helped bolster the application for cultural and entertainment district designation.

“McGregor has always been kind of a cultural and entertainment district even though it didn’t have the designation...It’s such a nice, compact area, and it just made sense to actually call it what it is,” said McGregor Economic Development Lead and Deputy City Clerk Duane Boelman.
