Orange City, Iowa, kicks off this year’s RAGBRAI® as the starting overnight host town on Saturday, July 22. To get things rockin’ and rollin’ for the thousands of cyclists, support crews, and guests, popular high-energy bands take the stage downtown at noon with the alternative rock band Remedy Drive.
Following Remedy Drive’s concert, local group the Kley De Jong Band takes the stage in the bandshell at 2:30. The evening cranks things up on the Main Stage at 5:30 with Judd Hoos, an American rock band from Sturgis, South Dakota. Then the party really pops at 8pm with Pop ROCKS, a high energy live music show that plays the biggest dance party hits.
The lineup of music at Orange City RAGBRAI offers a variety of styles for all generations, and the entertainment venue in the community’s downtown area provides a fun and festive atmosphere to get the week’s bike ride rolling.
