Our popular weekly summer Saturday concerts from late May to early September are "pay-what-you-can-afford" with baskets passed to compensate the musicians. Four additional off-season Saturday events are also entirely free-will donation funded. Our doors are open to all who wish to attend these events.

TICKETED EVENTS have varying admission fees, limited seating, and online ticket sales. If not sold out in advance, tickets will be available at the door. Ticketed events are scheduled during our off-season (Sept to May).


Doors open one hour before the performance. Come early for best parking and seats. All concerts are indoor and climate-controlled.

Performances by World-Class Artists with Midwestern Roots


Mark your calendar for family-friendly concerts in our beautiful indoor temperature-controlled music sanctuary at Spring Creek United Church of Christ. Our grounds are gorgeous year-round so come early and do some exploring. Summer concerts are scheduled EVERY Saturday evening mid-May through early September, plus a variety of monthly concert dates and times in the off-season. Performances feature Jazz, Bluegrass, Dixieland, Folk, Gospel, Country, R&B, Celtic, and more.


Saturday seating is limited to approximately 300 guests. We have space in our lot for about 95 vehicles plus overflow lawn parking if weather permits. Many of our concerts draw audiences of 150 or more, so it's a good idea to arrive early. Doors open one hour before the concert unless otherwise noted. Use caution if parking along busy Spring Brook Road. Please avoid blocking any of our neighbors' driveways and watch out for bicycles in the bike lanes.

For ALL weekly Saturday concerts during our May-Sept summer season, musicians are compensated by funds in a basket collection before intermission, minus a modest percentage retained by the church to cover expenses. Because there are no tickets or admission fees, we hope the audience will donate generously when the baskets are passed. For those who can afford it, we suggest a minimum of $10-$15 per person, but all are welcome to attend regardless of ability to contribute financially.


All of our summer Saturday concerts plus five monthly off-season Saturday concerts include pizza from Mamma Mia's, canned soda, bottled water, fresh popcorn, coffee, and often feature homemade desserts. 100% of the funding for these Saturday Concerts On The Creek events comes from FREE WILL DONATIONS. Concession funds are used to grow our church initiatives and are not included in performer compensation.


PLEASE NOTE that our Sunday concerts will not offer pizza or fresh popcorn. Sunday concessions are limited to light refreshments and beverages unless otherwise advertised. Concessions at ticketed events will vary.


These concerts are offered by Spring Creek United Church of Christ as a community outreach initiative. We're committed to making Rockford a great place to live, one concert at a time.
