Join a groovy trip back to Max Yasgur's historic hay field to experience the 1969 Woodstock Music and Art Fair. Museum Director and Senior Curator Wade Lawrence invites you to learn about one of the pivotal moments of the sixties and the efforts currently being done to preserve and secure official historic designation for the festival site.
The day will begin with light refreshments and a casual meet and greet, followed by an engaging multimedia presentation about Woodstock and the cultural center that builds upon its legacy today. Following the presentation and Q&A, weather permitting, Mr. Lawrence will lead a walking tour of the historic site, pointing out the landscape clues about what happened there almost five decades ago and Bethel Woods' plans for the historic landscape's future.
The Museum at Bethel Woods is located at 200 Hurd Road, Bethel (Sullivan County), New York. Visit www.bethelwoodscenter.org for more details.
