Located at the site of the 1969 Woodstock festival, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is dedicated to preserving the past and encouraging positive change for the future by inspiring, educating and empowering through the transformative power of the arts and humanities. Come meditate or frolic on the 1969 Woodstock festival field. Come dance under the stars on the lush lawn of our 15,000 capacity Pavilion Stage amphitheater, boasting acts from Elton John to Pitbull, and Zac Brown Band to The New York Philharmonic. Come experience The Sixties — from a beanbag chair in our 360° theater, or a seat on the psychedelic bus in our award-winning Museum. Engaging arts and humanities programs, for children and adults, includes festivals, workshops, speaker series, and films for the whole family. There are so many reasons to come back to Bethel Woods.
