About this Video
50 Years ago, a controversial and life-changing event took place in Bethel, NY, known as the Woodstock Folk Festival.. The Festival rejected first at Woodstock, was booted further upstate and then to Wallkill, NY. Still further north a Dairy Farmer named Max Yasgur had the perfect bowl shaped acreage and literally had to fight his Town of Bethel to hold the Concert. It was an extraordinary moment of solidarity between generations.
