Rockford Day

What is Rockford Day?

Rockford Day is held annually on August 15 but can be celebrated for multiple days or even the whole month! Rockford Day aims to showcase the people, places and things that make Rockford great with fun and interactive experiences throughout the city. We encourage everyone to use the hashtag #RockfordDay2023 or #815Day2023 in any social media posts about Rockford Day!

Rockford Day invites local businesses, agencies, non-profits, and other organizations from both the private and public sectors to join in the celebration by offering Rockford Day themed specials, discounts and events across the city and surrounding communities.

There are many additional ways for companies, organizations, and even individuals to participate in Rockford Day. From celebrating with your employees or neighbors, to engaging in social media challenges, we have great ideas for how every Rockford resident can get involved. 

Rockford Day Specials

Participants will have their Rockford Day offerings featured on the Rockford Day Facebook and Twitter pages, and may be included in various promotional media (i.e., print, radio, TV).

Participants are encouraged to enlist offerings that have an 815 twist. (Several of us are 779ers and we’re joining in on the Rockford Day fun). There is no charge to participate. The deadline to submit your events and specials has now passed but you can still post your deals, specials, and events to your social media pages using the hashtags #RockfordDay2023 or #815Day2023.
