What is Rockford Day?
Rockford Day is held annually on August 15, but this year we encourage everyone to extend the celebration for the entire weekend, beginning Friday, August 13 through Sunday, August 15. 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 #RockfordDay2021 or #815Day2021 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. Take a look at the Google Map of all of the specials and events here!
Rockford Day Apparel
We encourage everyone to shop local, and take advantage of the sweet Rockford Day apparel specials going on! Rock whatever Rockford gear you have!
Ways to Participate
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.
