How it all began...

 Jay Hill, life-long Alaskan, began the  three-day event in 1994 with a desire to use his love for music to help  those down on their luck. Having experienced serious times of need  himself, he was set on keeping the admission an affordable 5 cans  of food to see local bands play. Foodstock has been held at many  different local venues through the decades, but is usually near the  Summer Solstice weekend. Since then, Foodstock has been an annual event,  collecting more than 74 tons of food and $102,383.41 to help those in  need!

We lost Jay, our friend and musician in 2012, but his family members and friends, have continued the all volunteer event.

Many  talented musicians volunteer their time and energy to play on one of  two stages, one indoor and one outdoor; currently at the Howling Dog  Saloon. Many fine local businesses and residents donate money, services  and goods which are auctioned off on Saturday night.

There is an  outdoor beer garden, dancing, volleyball, horseshoes, arts/crafts &  food vendors. People come from as far away as Florida, Hawaii and Austin, TX to  share music, good will, and support a great cause!
