Billed as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music," the event would attract some of the greatest Rock musicians of the time and become known as the most famous rock concert and festival ever held. Travel back to three days that defined a generation by joining us for a screening of the American Experience documentary, Woodstock. This event is free to attend and open to the public. Seating is limited.
