Absolutely beautiful grounds & a friendly crowd. There is a nice museum and gift shop,selling Woodstock themed items. It was fun knowing so much rock & roll history was made... More

We came here back in June 2014 to see Boston Heaven On Earth Tour and Cheap Trick. The concert was amazing! Boston sounded awesome especially when playing Foreplay/Longtime! We sat in the last section before the lawn seats and it was still a perfect view. It is a nice center for the arts right in Bethel, NY with great mountain... More

Visited for the first time recently and am looking forward to going back! The history is alive as you walk the hills that you know were covered in young people 45 years ago! Today's venue is well manicured and lovely. I saw Jimmy Buffet in July and we sat on the lawn. Everything was perfect! I look forward to going... More

Beautiful grounds, easy access. John Fogerty was outstanding. The only downside was we purchased the Marketplace buffet and the food was not that good. Not worth the money. The desserts were not fresh and the food was bland.
