Editor’s Note 07/22/22 9:25am: Please note, the headliner for Rock the Dock, Galactic, has unfortunately had to cancel due to a medical emergency. Twiddle is stepping in as headliner.
One of the most popular, rockin’ events of the summer is this weekend in Lake George! See what else is going on with Georgia O’Keeffe-centered happenings, the first play of the year for our favorite dinner theater company, and a blueberry-themed festival at a farmers market.
Make Your Way Into the Weekend With Music, Theater & Art
This year’s Rock the Dock lineup at the Lake George Steamboat Company includes Twiddle, Annie in the Water, Chestnut Grove, Glass Pony, O-Man & The Nite Trippers, and Raisinhead. In addition to live music you can expect food and craft beer vendors, band memorabilia for sale, and more. Note: 25% of ticket sales go towards the Lake George Association.
Slightly overlapping with Rock the Dock is Fridays at the Lake, close by in Shepard Park. Grand Central Station is a full-entertainment, high-energy band that will make you want to get up and dance. The Ultimates is a super group party band comprised of members of Bad Chaperones, Groove Syndicate, and Uncle Wiggly.
The Lake George Arts Project hosts this George O’Keeffe-themed painting workshop at the Caldwell-Lake George Library. All supplies are included, you can take home your masterpiece, and it’s less expensive than most paint-and-sip events.
