July 2018 to June 2019 was the best fiscal year to date for the Coronado Performing Arts Center.

According to WIFR the increases during this time frame are some of the best ever for the "Crown Jewel" of Rockford.

  • 75% increase in event contribution
  • 49% increase in ticketed events
  • 40% increase in event days held
  • 33% increase in attendance

Let's look at the events that the Coronado held during the last 12 months and see if we could connect the dots here...I think YOU will figure this out:

  • Kansas
  • One Night of Queen
  • John Mellencamp
  • REO Speedwagon
  • Alice Cooper
  • Brit Floyd
  • Get The Led Out

Let that soak in for a minute..

In my personal opinion, the Coronado is not used nearly enough. There are theaters of the same size across the country that have TRIPLE the amount of performances.
