For summer outdoor concerts this venue near Rockford is on the Must-Visit List.

Have You Heard Of RiverEdge Park in Aurora?

There is an amazing outdoor summer concert venue just a short drive from Rockford. It is called RiverEdge Park in Aurora, Illinois.

According to, 

"The goal was to create a park along the Fox River where people could relax and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding nature, right in the heart of the second-largest city in the state."


"Their team drew inspiration from many different established parks, including Millennium Park, Grant Park, and Milwaukee’s Marcus Amphitheater."


"And when there’s not a concert, the Park is open to anyone who wishes to enjoy the tranquil surroundings."

It really does look like a cool venue. The best part is that you do not have to drive into Chicago to attend a concert. I think the more outdoor venue options for summer concerts. the better.
