Yachtstock, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that provides help for local families and children’s charities. Over the years we have raised tens of thousands of dollars for many brave children. Our main event is the annual Yachtstock Rocktoberfest, the region’s largest outdoor charity concert event. We are celebrating our 22nd Rocktoberfest on Octoberfest 9 ,2021. Yachtstock Rocktoberfest originated with George Spicer and a small group of musicians putting together a jam session at the West End Boat Club. The event grew and the founders decided to raise money for a local family whose child was suffering from brain cancer and struggling with medical bills. This original focus -- helping families with children dealing with chronic and life threatening illness, has remained our mission to this present day. Throughout the years many local families benefited from the hard work of volunteers, talented musicians/singers, generous sponsors and the support of our longstanding venue and partner, the West End Boat Club.
