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.
Ya gotta regatta! The Head of the Rock Regatta is a rowing race of 5,000 meters (3.2 miles) on the Rock River. There are 65 teams with 1,700 participants and the event attracts over 5,000 spectators each year. Martin Park, the Symbol, Sinnissippi Gardens, and anywhere along the east bank of the river (between Riverside Boulevard and Whitman Street) are great viewing spots.
