« back to classes page
On an August weekend some fifty years ago, an estimated half-million young people converged on a dairy farm in upstate New York to attend a folk and rock concert advertised as “An Aquarian Exposition – 3 Days of Peace and Music in White Lake, N.Y.” Organizers had originally designed Woodstock to be a profit-making venture with an anticipated 200,000 attendees; but a crowd more than double that size converged on the  selected venue site, created massive traffic jams in the process, and overwhelmed the available support services, turning the event into a “free concert.” Come take a peek back through the looking glass for a glimpse at the planning and staging of an event that evolved into a three day “love in” and became symbolic of the 1960s counter-culture social movement.
