This year’s Rockville will be the largest yet, with a 25% increase in sales from last year’s record attendance. We are so appreciative of Mayor Brown’s support and leadership in expanding this festival into EverBank Field. I believe this is the first step in unlocking Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville’s full potential.” – Danny Wimmer Presents CEO Danny Hayes

The expansion into EverBank Field also led to a new partnership with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Says DWP’s head of marketing Clay Busch, “We are thrilled to have the Jags participating in Rockville as we continue to expand the festival’s offerings into sports and food.” SMG Jacksonville manages EverBank Field, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars, on behalf of the City of Jacksonville.
