Friends Of Yasgur's Farm
I have been asked by many people what will be happening this August for the Woodstockers Reunion, To avoid any problem with legal stuff this is my reply:
As is typical with past gatherings in Bethel since 1969
The local authorities are less than thrilled that people will be coming to Bethel this August because no event permits have been requested or issued.
Also I have learned in the past (via a restraining order) that advertising or promoting such an event would make me liable with the Town and NY State agencies.
So I CAN not tell you to come to Bethel on the reunion weekend of August 17th, Nor can I tell you whether I have been informed that there may be anything happening at the farm this August.
I have been required in the past by the authorities to advise people not to come to Bethel unless they have a DARN GOOD REASON to be there.
But: If anyone would like to attend the FOYF meeting to discuss saving the Woodstock Site from development I would guess that would be a valid reason to be at the Farm on the weekend of August 17th!
UPDATE: A birdie told me that August 16th, 17th, 18th would be a good time to visit Bethel as a tourist looking for something PEACEFUL to do. I would guess that you should bring things with you as if you were camping out for 3 more days of Peace Love & Music in a wooded area. Firewood and bug spray are in order. Glass containers are a No-No. You know what else could get you in trouble with the law, please leave that home. And for your friends, furry or otherwise, who cant get along with others in this environment, they should stay safe at home also.
NOTICE: This could be the last time you find the Original Woodstock Site unspoiled before they erect a security fence around it and build a performing arts center on nearly half of the original 38 acres.
If you want to have your children see it before they PAVE PARADISE,
DO IT SOON!
Because next year it may be a PARKING LOT!
