Rockford Day

What is Rockford Day?

Rockford Day is held annually on August 15. Rockford Day aims to showcase the people, places and things that make Rockford great with fun and interactive experiences throughout the city. The theme of Rockford Day this year is "Celebrating Our Resilience" and we encourage everyone to use the hashtags #RockfordDay2020 and #CelebratingOurResilience 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. 

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.
