People from all over the world travel to this site for the performing arts center, museum, classes and exhibits, events and more.

It's music to my ears when I hear about more events and shows going on at Bethel Woods.

I have attended my different concerts here, been to the museum a handful of times, walked through the Bindy Bazaar trail, visited the gift shop, attended Peace, Love & Lights and explored the grounds.

The Bindy Bazaar trail showcases the grounds where the exchanging of goods happened during the Woodstock festival. Upon visiting the Bindy Bazaar Trail, I was greeted by a fellow Bethel Woods lover. This man explained how he was present in 1969 for the festival and was a part of the transactions taking place at that time.
