Event Info

Jade Presents and Merrill Piepkorn are pleased to announce the Bluestem 50th Anniversary of Peace and Music, a two-day celebration featuring local music, food, and craft vendors.

In August 1969, the Woodstock Music & Art Fair took place on a dairy farm in Bethel, NY. Over half a million people came to a 600-acre farm to hear 32 acts (leading and emerging performers of the time) play over the course of four days (August 15-18). Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, the Who, Janis Joplin and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young were among the lineup. Woodstock is known as one of the greatest happenings of all time and –perhaps- the most pivotal moment in music history.

The following performers will be showcasing tributes to original festival artists, with more to be announced:
