2017 Rock the Dock Benefit

Monday, July 3 at the Community Sailing Center

Join us for an unforgettable evening as we ROCK the DOCK with great music and a view of the fireworks display from our prime waterfront location.  All proceeds go to support the McConnell Scholarship Fund, ensuring access to Lake Champlain and the Community Sailing Center for all interested youth, adults, family, and local non-profits.

Last year, Rock the Dock 2016 raised over $25,000 and saw hundreds of kids benefit from the scholarship program, all while providing a great night of music, dancing, and all around good times for attendees at our unmatched waterfront location during the Burlington 4th of July fireworks display.

All of this is possible thanks to generous community support and our amazing event sponsors:
