Zoom In
On August 15, 1969
The Woodstock Music and Art Fair opened at Max Yasgur's dairy farm in Bethel, New York. Thirty-two of the best-known musicians of the day appeared during the sometimes rainy weekend. Although attempts have been made over the years to recreate the festival, the original event has proven to be unique and legendary. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest moments in popular music history and was listed on Rolling Stone's 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.

    WOODSTOCK '69 is one memory that will last forever! We had so much fun. For some reason, they never took my tickets and I have them stored away in a box. My grandfather owned a place down the road from the farm and we hitchhiked down a long stretch of road to take showers so we wouldn't lie in mud the whole weekend!! Woodstock can never be recreated just like the musicians and folks of that period. We were ALL SPECIAL and we will all cherish those memories forever! All we had was a blanket and our bandanas. You can just imagine but you had to be there to believe it! Too bad, I lost touch with the friends that shared this experience with me. Life is short, and memories are worth a thousand words especially since our lives have changed so much. If I knew then, what I know now, man could things have been so different! Regards to all of you who had the opportunity to attend the WOODSTOCK FESTIVAL. Share your memories.
