We're the Forest City, where you can find affordable homes on tree-lined streets in friendly neighborhoods.
Our central location, with easy access to major highways, rail service and one of the fastest growing airports in the country, makes Rockford
a great location to live, work and play.
Rockford is a destination for special events with our weekly City Market, the Screw City Beer Festival, and the holiday Stroll on State Street just to name a few. Our city's many ethnic heritages come to life through the St. Patrick's Day Parade, Polish Fest, Festa Italia, Cinco de Mayo and of course, a downtown 4th of July celebration that cannot be beat!
Our family and recreational activities include access to the award winning Rockford Park District facilities, boating on the Rock River, the Discovery Center and of course Jane, the dinosaur, at the Burpee Museum of Natural History.
We have a proud past and an even brighter future. We think you'll find that Rockford is a wonderful place to raise a family or grow your business.
