What They Are about
The Pavilion Stage amphitheater can accommodate 15,000 both under cover and on a natural sloping lawn, while offering unique backdrops including the original festival site and the majesty of the surrounding Sullivan County countryside. This stage has featured legendary artists from rock to classical, and country to jazz.
The Museum at Bethel Woods is dedicated to the study and exhibition of the social, political and cultural events of the 1960s, including the 1969 festival field and Woodstock monument, the legacies of the times and the preservation of the 1969 Woodstock festival site. The Museum is a leading authority on the history of the 1960s and its transformative impact on the world.
The Event Gallery at Bethel Woods is an intimate 422 seat performance space, hosting various musical programs throughout the year. From chamber music to cabaret, popular musicians to children & family programs.
Give yourself plenty of time to drive in and out for sold-out concerts. The two-lane road can get bottlenecked and this is a popular venue.
Lawn seating is a good time. Bring a blanket, kick back, and relax.
Be ready for the inevitable 2nd-hand wafts of what the Summer of '69 smelled like in true
