Join us on Anniversary Weekend for the inaugural Daisy Drop at Bethel Woods.

Following Joe Cocker's performance at Woodstock on August 17, 1969, a Bell H-13 Sioux helicopter flew over the festival and dropped daisies on the field. More than fifty years later, we are recreating this moment.


All proceeds sustain art education programs, historic preservation efforts, and The Museum at Bethel Woods. 

Thank you for supporting our nonprofit organization!
