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. 


Live Music at Anderson Japanese Gardens

Join friends and family at Anderson Japanese Gardens every Tuesday for Tuesday Evening in the Gardens! Each week a different performer will play live music outside in the picturesque setting of the gardens. Food and beverages are available for purchase, or visitors are welcome to bring in a picnic dinner! While listening to the music, guests are also encouraged to walk around and explore the gardens.

The next musical group to perform on Tuesday, July 22 will be Lily and Madeleine! This sister act combines folk and gentle rock into seamless harmonies.
