Sinnissippi Park Music Shell - Sounds of Summer

The historic Sinnissippi Park Music Shell is one of Rockford's greatest treasures.  The acoustic amphitheater was first introduced in 1950 and has become a popular summer tradition.  The FREE concert series kicks off on June 6th with the world class Phantom Regiment.  Among the packed summer lineup, you'll enjoy performances from local talents such Music Shell 2as Harlan Jefferson, Miles Nielsen & the Rusted Hearts, the Rockford Concert Band, and many more!  This summer's schedule is sure to have something to please everyone.  With bench seating as well as lawn and terrace seating, the Music Shell can accommodate up to 3700 people!  Bring your picnic baskets or enjoy food and beverages from the concessions.  Located in the peaceful park setting, you can forget you're even in Rockford, yet you're still close to the downtown River District.  This summer, be sure to enjoy the arts, restaurants, cultural venues, and more that Rockford has to offer.
