Bethel Woods Center for the Arts - Located at the site of the original 1969 Woodstock concert on Max Yasgur's farm, Bethel Woods is a world-class performing arts center. Its inaugural 2006 opened with the New York Philharmonic and brought avid concertgoers a full range of music all summer: beautiful jazz with Wynton Marsales and Diane Reeves; full-bore rock with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; kickin' country with Brad Paisley; and many others including the Boston Pops. The 2011 season promises to be even bigger. Bethel Woods is a fine venue for music, with manicured grounds, amphitheatre and lawn seating, ample refreshments -- all in the peaceful setting of the Upper Delaware Catskills.
