THE STORY:


Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is in Bethel, New York at the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock Music and Art Fair. In August 1969, half-a-million people gathered here for a three-day festival of peace, love, and music. The festival was a monumental and pivotal event that inspired social responsibility and advanced the peace and environment movements, civil rights, and creative expression.  

We are undertaking a series of historic preservation projects on this recently designated National Register Historic Site. These undertakings will make yet unexplored areas of the festival site accessible and enable us to reveal further, the factual history that lies just beneath the surface, and use innovative technologies to immerse visitors in all the stories the site offers.  

A contribution today will help fund the BINDY TRAILS PROJECT. It will mark and restore the forested trails to the festival’s marketplace called the Bindy Bazaar where festival vendors sold clothing, jewelry, leather goods, posters, and exotic wares. Trails marked “Groovy Way,” “High Way,” and “Gentle Path” led to colorful booths set amongst hemlocks and ferns. Bindy Bazaar offered woodsy meeting places and crossroads with tire swings and footbridges, beckoning festival goers to explore plant life and a peaceful retreat.    

Your gift will help restore these magical, wooded pathways.  This important initiative is part of a larger project to improve access to the grounds of the festival’s historic site — keeping the Woodstock and the Sixties legacies alive!    

MAKE A DONATION OF $100 OR MORE AND RECEIVE A LIMITED EDITION, NUMBERED VIAL OF AUTHENTIC SOIL FROM THE ORIGINAL WOODSTOCK SITE!  

Thank you for continuing the PEACE, LOVE & MUSIC.
