at the site of the historic 1969 festival
- and also enjoy a Harvest and Wine Festival!!
WHO: Members and Friends of the Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club
WHAT: A celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Woodstock - a day trip to Bethel, NY to visit the Museum at Bethel Woods, located at the site of the original 1969 Woodstock festival. The Museum is an immersive and captivating multi-media experience that combines film and interactive displays, text panels and artifacts to tell the story and legacy of the Sixties and Woodstock. It explores the unique experience that was the Woodstock festival, its significance as a culminating event of a decade of radical cultural transformation.
Through personal stories and profiles, immersive multi-media exhibit displays and experiences, engaging programs, and educational events, The Museum encourages inter-generational dialogue about important ideas and issues relevant to today. It also helps to preserve the historic site on which the 1969 Woodstock Music and Art Fair took place.
We will be visiting the site during Sullivan County’s Harvest Festival. The Harvest Festival includes a farmer’s market and craft event, with live music, special events, artist demonstrations, a children’s area and venders selling home-made foods. The day we will be visiting coincides with a special theme – a Wine Festival that features a tasting of regional wineries from the Finger Lakes and the Hudson Valley's Shawangunk Wine Trail, short seminars and other elements of interest to connoisseurs, collectors and wine lovers. (Wine is available for tasting and for sale; there is an additional $5 participation fee.)
WHEN: You can get on the bus Sunday August 30th when our private charter bus will leave Fair Lawn, New Jersey (we will meet at the Commuter Parking Lot by the Fair Lawn Recycling Center located at 20-05 Saddle River Road) at 9am and we will arrive at the Woodstock site at approximately 11am. You will be able to visit the museum, check out the Harvest and Wine Festival, and enjoy the site until 4:30pm when our bus leaves for the return trip home.
