Get on the bus for a virtual visit to the Woodstock festival location in Bethel NY!
I recently made a music pilgrimage to the original Woodstock festival location. It’s a wonderful, safe visit to the museum at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. They are currently limiting attendance to 25 % capacity and masks are required.
The museum does a great job setting up the differences between the early 60’s pop culture and what led up to the Woodstock Music and Art Fair in 1969.
Of course, I was very interested in the display that contrasted early 60’s fashion, mod fashion, and the clothes worn by festival attendees!
If you go, I recommend you pay an extra $5 for the outdoor “Meet Me at Woodstock: an Augmented Reality Tour Experience”. This prerecorded tour is narrated by Nick & Bobbi Ercoline, the couple pictured on the front of the Woodstock soundtrack album. They take you on tour of the site, letting you know where all the important places were in 69. It’s as close as you get to being there.
So put on your Janis glasses, fringed vest, and love beads and go! It’s only 2 1/2 hours from Asbury Park. I highly recommend this trip!
