Rockford Day Specials

Rockford Day Specials

Participants may 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.

(There are plenty of Rockford Day Events happening in the region too! Click here to see the events!)
