Rockford Day Specials

Rockford Day Specials

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

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. 

Take a look at a Google Map of all the specials here!
