Cedar Rapids, Iowa – Earlier Tuesday, Governor Reynolds announced a State of Public Health Disaster Emergency effective through March 31. This means events of more than 10 people are prohibited.
This currently affects several of our shows including: The Gun Show, The Gem, Mineral, & Fossil Show, The Midwest Antique Show, and any private rentals.
The Gun Show and Midwest Antique Show have been postponed, and makeup dates for those events will be announced in the future.
The Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Show planned for March 28-29 has been canceled. There is no plan to reschedule the show currently.
We are working with the affected shows on a case-by-case basis to do what is best for show promoters, our guests, and our staff. Moving forward, Hawkeye Downs will continue to follow local and federal officials’ guidance to ensure the safety of everyone on our campus.
Our website and social media will be updated with event information as changes continue and more information becomes available.
