Real. Original. Rockford.

The Rockford Region is a Real. Original City of Gardens and rivers, and a wonderful place to spend a life - or a weekend. Our Calendar of Events is full of plenty of things to do and see. Explore one our museums, visit some unique shops, grab a bite to eat at one of our many restaurants, take in some arts and culture, or relax at one of our hotels. It's all right here in Real. Original. Rockford. 




For one very special weekend each year, everyone who passes through the gates of Festa Italiana is an "Honorary Italian." Bring your family for great Italian food and pastries, continuous entertainment, Italian cultural exhibit, souvenirs, Bocce tournaments, carnival rides, children's crafts and much more!
