Help future generations understand the power of peace, love, and music.

Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, at the historic site of the Woodstock festival, brings the ideals of 1969 into the present with a mission to inspire, educate, and empower individuals through the arts and humanities.

Donors to Bethel Woods provide support to sustain our organization and fund programming, preservation, and presentation efforts. With each passing year, it is clear that the most significant part of our story is the people who have touched our organization.  

We are committed to:

  • Creating programming that explores the social, political, and cultural impact of the ’60s, the spirit of the Woodstock festival, and its impact on the nation and the world.
  • Presenting multidimensional arts programming that builds capacity and character, supports healthy expression, and inspires participation and continual learning.
  • Expanding our efforts to support our community and revitalize the cultural and economic life of our region.
