Rockford Brewing’s Beer Tent will set the Stage for Harvest Festival

On the weekend of Sept. 26, 2014, thousands of people will pour into Rockford’s scenic downtown for Harvest Festival, and in anticipation for this event, Rockford Brewing Company (RBC) has prepared a special lineup of entertainment.

RBC prides itself on its continuous involvement in the Rockford community and strives to build on the town’s already reputable appeal. It has become the company’s goal to represent a fun, mindful lifestyle, through the means of outdoor recreation and fresh products from the local agriculture community. As Rockford Brewing continues to grow, so too does its involvement with the city and local businesses.

The festivities are set to kick off on Friday, Sept. 26, at 5 p.m. and will run until 11 p.m. in RBC’s south parking lot. There will be live music from Channing and Quinn at 5.p.m., while Delilah Dewylde & The Lost Boys headline the night, taking the stage at 8 p.m.

On Saturday, Sept. 27, the tent will be open from noon until 11 p.m. and will feature a variety of events, which includes a chili cook off inside the tent! Contestants are expected to arrive at 8 a.m. and the judging will take place at 12 p.m. Samples of the chili and RBC brews will then be available to the public. After the competition is complete, RBC will once again feature live local bands for the rest of the night. The Legal Immigrants will begin at 5 p.m. and Hannah Rose and the GraveTones will take the stage at, roughly, 8 p.m.

Along with the chili cook off and live music, RBC is hosting a collaborative event, Coq to the Fly, with Brewery Vivant on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. The two breweries will host a bike ride from Vivant to RBC, and each release a special collaboration beer for the event (Coq2Fly), which will be available inside the brewery’s beer tent at 2pm along with live music from The Moonrays. In honor of Harvest Festival, RBC will also release the exclusive Harvest Ale series!
