Labor Day Weekend in the Rockford Region

Tuesday, August 17, 2021 3:00 PM by Elizabeth Miller

Labor Day Weekend is always a time for fun get-togethers with family and friends, grilling out, and enjoying the last bit of summer! The holiday celebrates and pays tribute to the working men and women in this country, but also serves as the unofficial end to summer. As we enjoy this last stretch of warm weather in the Midwest, here are some suggestions of things to do and places to go to celebrate Labor Day Weekend!

Calling all theatre lovers! Live musicals are happening again and our friends at The Studio are more excited than ever. After a long pause of live performances in the entertainment world, it’s very refreshing to see things slowly beginning to take shape again. Ahead of their second weekend of shows, I was able to chat with Courtney and Adam Walsh about The Studio and GRIMM.

Since interning at the RACVB, one of my favorite things about working in Rockford has been the food. As an individual who is gluten free and lives in a small town with very limited GF options for eating out, the food scene, particularly the GF food scene, in Rockford has been everything. One of my favorites has been Quixotic Bakery. Quixotic Bakery, best known for their cake-in-a-jar, is a hidden gem of Rockford and very accommodating to those who have dietary restrictions (gluten free and vegan individuals).

As we flip our calendars into July, and the long holiday weekend passes, it begins to feel like summer is in full swing. Personally, I always feel like the 4th of July is that midpoint of the season, and it’s time to start checking things off the summer “to do” list. If you’re looking for some fun things to do in the Rockford area this summer, I got you covered.
