Bethel Woods Center for the Arts


The site of the 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Fair, on Max Yasgur's farm outside Bethel, is 70 miles southwest of the town of Woodstock. It's now home to an outdoor amphitheater with great summer concerts and an evocative museum with exhibits that burst with the music and images that made Woodstock such a cultural force.
