Shop locally on Saturday & Sunday, December 7-8
Bethel, NY (November 21, 2019) – Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, located at the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock festival, today announced that the 10th Annual Holiday Market will return to the nonprofit cultural arts organization on Saturday and Sunday, December 7-8. The free event will take place from 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM daily.
An expansion from last year’s event, which had been the largest to date, this year’s Holiday Market will feature over 85 vendors throughout the Market Sheds, Event Gallery and grounds, highlighting the talent from regional vendors and beyond, while offering a selection of food trucks and outdoor vendors.
Admission to The Museum at Bethel Woods will be 50% off, and will be open 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM daily, with last entry at 2:00 PM. The Museum immerses visitors in the story of the societal evolution of the 1960s, exploring the resurgent human spirit that defined the politics, music, art, and societal issues of that remarkable and challenging decade. Presented by Orange Bank & Trust, the 2019 Special Exhibit We Are Golden features a large collection of authentic Woodstock artifacts such as instruments, clothing, equipment, art and photography to explore what the youth of 1969 wanted for the world during this time and how it mirrors the desires of contemporary youth.
In addition to one convenient location for all holiday shopping needs, families are encouraged to create together in the Holiday Craft Studio, to create handmade gift tags, gift wrap and more. The studio will be located in the Classrooms on the lower level of The Museum building from 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop will be onsite on Saturday to spread holiday cheer with live caroling throughout the day.
From 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM, Bethel Woods will offer families the opportunity to have their photo taken with Santa in The Main Exhibit in front of the iconic psychedelic bus. There is no charge for photos, although donations to support Bethel Woods’ creative learning and preservation projects are graciously accepted.
New this year, on the first day of Holiday Market, a ceremonious Lighting of the Dove will take place at 4:30 PM across from the Museum entrance. The Sullivan Catskills Dove Trail© commemorates the 50th anniversary of the greatest festival of all time and celebrates its impact on the Sullivan Catskills.
