Iowa's Top 4 March Events!

Spring is coming! Check out the top 4 Iowa events for the month of March.

1. Live in Central Park Revisited: Simon & Garfunkel, Des Moines (March 9-10)

In 1981, more than 500,000 music fans gathered in Central Park for the reunion of the folk duo Simon & Garfunkel. Award-winning recording artists Lee Lessack and Johnny Rodgers recreate that magical night at the Temple for Performing Arts while performing hits like "Mrs. Robinson," "Scarborough Fair" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water."

2. St. Patrick Society Grand Parade, Davenport (March 17)

The country's only bi-state St. Patrick's Day Grand Parade marks its 31st year. The parade starts at 11:30 a.m. in Rock Island, Illinois, travels across the Mississippi River on the Centennial Bridge and ends in downtown Davenport.

3. 35th Annual Maple Syrup Festival, Cedar Rapids (March 24-25)

Festivities include syrup making demonstrations, a look at the action inside the Maple Sugar House, live music and a delicious pancake and sausage breakfast with real maple syrup handcrafted at the Indian Creek Nature Center.  

4. Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, Sioux City (March 29)

This contemporary take on the classic tale features an incredible orchestra, jaw-dropping transformations and all the beloved moments - the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball and more - plus some surprising twists.
