Old Settlers Days: June 13-16, 2024

Old Settlers Days is an annual festival in Downtown Rockton that supports the Rockton Lions Club. Held along the Rock River at Settlers Park, this event is the club’s largest fundraiser, with proceeds benefiting local charities. Each June, around 20,000 people attend the four-day festival, which has been a tradition in the community for the past 25 years.

This year, Old Settlers Days will be held from June 13th-16th, 2024. Festival admission passes are $6 in advance and $10 at the gate. Admission passes can be purchased online here, or at Kelley Williamson Mobil gas stations in Rockton, Roscoe, Machesney Park, Loves Park, and at Bryden Motors in Beloit.

The festival features live entertainment by local and national acts, a carnival, food and drinks, a 50/50 raffle, a blood drive, and more. The main stage hosts the festival’s main event, featuring four country music artists this year. Concert tickets are available for purchase online here. Concert-goers must have both an admission pass and an additional concert ticket to enter the concert grounds.

Parking at Hononegah Community High School, 307 Salem St., Rockton, IL 61072, is highly encouraged. The school is a short walk from the festival grounds.
