On the Waterfront

On the WaterfrontOnce again as Labor Day approaches, one of the best music festivals in the state of Illinois, On the Waterfront will open in Rockford. This year the festival, which runs over Labor Day weekend, will have Dierks Bentley as a headliner on Thursday September 2nd at 7:00 PM. Adam Lambert will take center stage on Saturday September 4th at 5:00PM.  Also on stage will be Gregg Rollie founding member of Journey and Santana September 5th at 9:00 PM. So if you have not yet made your Labor Day weekend plans, this is a fun way to enter into the fall season.

This high-profile, award-winning, four-day event attracts over 100,000 people each day and covers 25 city blocks in the heart of the River District. There is something for every member of the family from carnival rides, kid’s fun runs, the Waterfront 5K, music, entertainment, hot air balloons and even an urban street market. With 30 food vendors on site, festival goers will easily find refreshments when it is time to take a break from all the fun!
