Pilgrims of Woodstock: A 50 Year Retrospective

  • This event has passed.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the famed event, author and popular culture historian John Kane will take you inside the Woodstock Festival in this presentation based on his new book Pilgrims of Woodstock.

This presentation offers a vivid and intimate portrait of the overlooked stars of the festival: the everyday people who made Woodstock unforgettable. The photographs by Richard F. Bellak and interviews capture attendees’ profound personal moments across hundreds of acres of farmland, as they meditated, played music, cooked food at night, and congregated around campfires. For three days, they helped and relied on each other in peace and harmony. For most, it was a life-changing event.
