Ragbrai 2021

Go Crazy with us on July 28th!

We’re excited to welcome you to the heart of our city for RAGBRAI… downtown Waterloo. You can enjoy music from multiple stages, find entertainment at a number of attractions, and enjoy a drink and a meal at one of our 15 bars and 24 restaurants within walking distance. Headlining the evening entertainment will be Purple Xperience featuring Marshall Charloff – Prince Tribute band. We can’t wait for you to experience Waterloo!

Volunteer Sign-Up is Open!

The number one thing RAGBRAI riders say they love about Iowa is the hospitality of our communities. Be a part of the fun by volunteering with your friends and family or  group volunteer at RAGBRAI Waterloo on July 28th! Volunteers also get a RAGBRAI Volunteer t-shirt.

Volunteers will assist with nearly every aspect of the event as thousands of participants bike through Waterloo. Don’t miss out on the experience, complete the registration form TODAY!

Volunteer Training is July 20th at Noon or 6pm. You will receive an email reminder prior to the training.

If you already singed up, watch the Volunteer training here:
