Fifty years ago, hundreds of thousands gathered in Bethel, NY - eager to embrace and spread ideals of love, acceptance, and welcoming.  Today, this spirit lives on.  Our nonprofit work is dedicated to inspiring, educating, and empowering through the arts and humanities.  As the year of the semicentennial of the greatest festival of all time comes to a close, won't you consider making a donation to Bethel Woods Center for the Arts?   Read on to find out how you are able to support our mission and what avenue of giving is right for you.


Museum Education and Creative Programs provide the foundation for Bethel Woods Center for the Arts mission-based initiatives that celebrate our heritage and help build creative capital by inspiring individuals to contribute positively to the world around them.   Special exhibitions, festivals, workshops, performances, films, and cultural events, provide diverse and engaging programs for audiences of all ages.  

With your help, we can inspire the next generation through creative programming.


As stewards of the historic site, it is paramount that Bethel Woods continues to discover and develop, yet preserve the sacred grounds. Ongoing preservation projects include the restoration and reopening of the Bindy Bazaar Trails.  Future projects include a virtual reality tour that will allow guests to travel back in time and see what Woodstock was like.

Help us preserve the historic site for future generations to also enjoy.


Bringing together the community to open conversations, inspire thinking and awaken purpose. Emphasizing the value of the arts and civic engagement, this allows us to bring the legacy of the past into conversation with the movements of today.

Your contribution ensures continued community engagement and programming.
