Yachtstock RiverJam is Delaware County's largest charity music festival, celebrating its 19th year June 24 from noon to 10 PM with 30 bands on three stages, family fun, food and merchant vendors, DELCO Cruisers Car Show and Tinicum County Fireworks -- all on the scenic Delaware River in Essington PA.
The outdoor concert is held each year on the banks of the Delaware River at the West End Boat Club. In 2017 Yachtstock is continuing its partnership with Tinicum Township with fireworks (this year to be located in the river off Corinthian Yacht Club adjacent to Gov. Printz Park & West End Boat Club), and the continued support of our main venue location and longstanding partner, West End Boat Club as well as the adjacent Corinthian Yacht Club. Adding to the festivities will be the DELCO CRUISERS CAR SHOW at Gov. Printz Park.
Charting country performer and renowned songwriter George Ducas will headline the Hamels Foundation RiverJam stage, along with co-headlining rising "Outlaw Country" stars the Highway Women, leading up to the Tinicum Township Fireworks display. Local bands will bring a mix of classic rock, country, funk, soul, and pop -- sure to please almost anyone with 30 bands on three stages.
In addition to great bands, and food and refreshment there are many activities for the whole family -- including (bigger and better!) Tinicum County fireworks, Moon Bounce & Super Slide, face painting, visits from the famous Shriner clowns, silent auctions, and more.
Yachstock RiverJam is the highlight of Yactstock's annual fundraising. This June 25th we celebrate our 18th year. Proceeds from this year's event will benefit two local families and Shriners Hospitals Philadelphia Unit.

After our artists rock the RiverJam stages we will enjoy fireworks on the river off Governor Printz Park.
