Partners, Sponsors & Friends

Meet the Organizations & Friends Who Make Bookstock Possible…

Bookstock is a Festival of Words … words that inform, challenge, inspire and activate. It is one distinctive way that Woodstock shows what it values…by showcasing the best creativity, thoughts, diversity and ideas of our times…right in the center of town!.

This annual event is produced by volunteers, donors, businesses, non-profits and key organizations in the Woodstock area.

Our Grantmakers and Sponsors…we thank them!

We gratefully acknowledge the essential support by Woodstock’s Economic Development Commission, which has provided us with start-up grants in 2022, 2023 and 2024, enabling us to restructure, hire staff and build our organization out of our informal past.
