The Library's Retro Summer Series commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, Apollo 11 moon landing, and Woodstock festival. From August 15 to August 18, 1969, more than 400,000 people decended onto Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm near White Lake in Bethel, New York - 43 miles southwest of Woodstock - for the Woodstock Music and Art Festival. 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.
