Yasgurs Farm Memorial Day weekend?

#24005 3 years, 5 months ago
There was to be a small festival with camping that was to coincide with the Phish shows at Bethel Woods this memorial day. If you canceled reservations to camp there instead, do yourself a favor and find new accommodations ASAP. They will NOT allow this event to take place on the farm NO way, NO how, sadly enough....

May just have to make this trip just to see how they handle this chaos. IMO, not the smartest thing they could have done here. Anyhow you heard it hear first....

Bethel Woods is NOT a user friendly facility, at least while I've been there. The Phish people will find that out quickly. The parking lot does not swing. The Woodstock museum there is cool (Thanks to Wavy). And no, where the concerts are is not the same hill that the first Woodstock was held. You can look at that site as you walk up to where the music is now off to your left. My plan was to go to Yasgurs Farm set up goods and sell goods to the Phish-heads for the weekend. If your goin' plan on seeing tons of NY State troopers, speed traps abound.
