Bubba's Three Goals of the Tour

1) Honor America's Veterans

 

2) Promote Iowa tourism

 

3) Provide for my family

NOTE:  The goal is to be unique and tell specific stories as the "PC, all branches, all eras memorials" have been done.  Please understand that the artist has control of the content/design of each rock, relying on each county for some of the ideas to inspire said design.



The Freedom Rock Tour
The Freedom Rock Tour

     The Freedom Rock Tour, created by the artist of The Freedom Rock; Ray "Bubba" Sorensen II, aims to boost tourism and spread the message of thanking our Veterans while providing a unique to their area Freedom Rock for all 99 counties in the great state of Iowa. 

     Sorensen will tour the state for the next few summers completing the murals and providing an instant tourist attraction. 

    Check below to see if your county has already booked and to see exactly where The Freedom Rocks reside.

     Remember, the application is just for info purposes and the Tour is booked on a first come, first serve basis.  So get your app in before the other towns in your county in order to secure your spot in history.  In other words, book the artist before you start the planning/funding process.

     Info is provided below, including the application for inclusion on the tour.  As always if there are any questions don't hesitate to call or email.


Has your county been booked already? CHECK MAP ABOVE.

We book depending on which town in each county gets us their application and down payment first.

 

Due to all the bookings and the fact that Bubba creates Freedom Rocks at the rate of 10 to 12 counties per year...our next available booking is in 2020.  Good news is that he is painting at a great pace but when Bubba created the tour in 2013 he expected it would take 10 years to make it to every county...so please use the extra time to plan for and find the perfect spot for your Freedom Rock®.  Thank you for your patience.

 

** Also, remember before you get to far into planning to book your county because it is first come first serve and we can't hold a spot for you unless you book.
