Midway Village Museum - Rockford: $15 for a Four-Ticket Family Package to the Sock Monkey Madness Festival ($30 Value)

For $15, today's deal gets you a four-ticket family package (two adults and two children under 18) to the Sock Monkey Madness Festival at Midway Village Museum on Saturday, March 5 or Sunday, March 6 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Sock Monkey Madness Festival celebrates one of Rockford's cuddliest contributions to American iconography with a weekend packed with crafts, vendors, food, and more. Hands-on activities abound, including crafts for kids and sock monkey touch-ups, as well as an extensive Make-a-Monkey workshop that lets eager crafters create their own footwear friend (an additional $20); be sure to call and reserve your sock-sewing spot. Dapper apes and apettes can strut their stuff at Sunday's Ms. and Mr. Sockford pageant, while film buffs can take a seat at the fifth-annual Sock Monkey International Film Festival and soak up endless sock-monkey footage. The festival also offers an exhibit highlighting the Rockford knitting industry that sparked the plush primate craze, and retail and food vendors will be present to stock unadorned hands with delectable edibles.

Midway Village Museum

Established in 1968, Midway Village Museum embodies a sprawling, 137-acre time capsule. Within the museum’s 27 fully functioning, Victorian buildings, exhibits tell the story of Rockford since its incorporation in the early 19th century. Throughout the years, the town has made history as the progenitor of the sock monkey, the launching point for aviator Bert Hassell, and home of the Rockford Peaches—an all-female baseball team fictionalized in the film A League of Their Own, though the real squad neither played in the 1943 championship nor battled a CGI dragon. Other attractions amid the barns, blacksmiths, and general stores include a dollhouse museum and a meticulous archive of Rockford’s long, proud history in the furniture industry.
