About Rockford

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 for new business development.

We're the home of Illinois' largest music festival, On the Waterfront; Jane, the dinosaur, at the Burpee Museum of Natural History; and we're the hometown of the internationally-known rock group, Cheap Trick.

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.

On this website, you will find information about a wide range of programs and services that we think make Rockford a great place to live, work and play.
