The River District Association will host its second annual Picnic en Plein Air, an outdoor dining experience like no other. Join us for an engaging upscale picnic style dinner evening on Water Street along the Rock River near the City Market Pavilion and Millennium Fountain park in downtown Rockford.

The Americana and Rustic/Vintage style evening will be catered by well known chef Paul Sletten, owner of Abreo. Bar service will be provided by District Bar and Grill, and Kelly Steward and Greg Whitson will play live from the back of a rustic pick-up truck.

In addition, local artists will be creating original works of art throughout the night. The works created by our artists will then be auctioned off to help with future RDA events and programs.

Funds raised this evening will be used to help the RDA continue to unite, advocate, and promote efforts to create a thriving business and residential community in Rockford’s downtown neighborhood.

Tickets for this one-of-a-kind event that will be the talk of the town again this year ar $100 per person and are on sale via the Register Now link box above or by clicking here!
