Rock the Dock Music Festival in Lake George, NY is for all ages and will feature live music on the pier, surrounded by the beautiful Adirondack mountains. Enjoy the sounds of several well-known jam bands, (including Lake George’s own Formula 5), from the dock or aboard the steamboats that surround the stage.

Rock the Dock will not only feature live music but will also include many local craft, food and beer vendors, as well as a merchandise tent featuring posters, t-shirts and other band memorabilia.

25% of all ticket proceeds go to The FUND for Lake George, so come enjoy good bands, delicious food, and tasty brews all while helping to keep the lake clean and pristine!
