Music, Festivals, Art & More
Bethel Woods - Home of the 1969 Woodstock Festival, live performances, and a whole lot of music history! A cutting-edge concert venue, Bethel Woods has been hosting top headliners for years, in addition to festivals, lectures, cabaret, and film screenings. Oh, plus a riveting museum dedicated to both Woodstock and the 1960s (authentic 60s artifacts included!) This state-of-the-art events center and concert venue in upstate NY is so much more than the ground it was founded upon (though being built on the hallowed ground of the most famous music festival in U.S. history isn’t too shabby.) The Kartrite Resort is just a short drive away from all the live shows and top headliners at the Bethel Woods Center For The Arts.

Special Events, Festivals, & Lectures
The Bethel Woods amphitheater also doubles as a fairground for special festivals and fundraisers taking place in the Catskills. Smaller theaters are available to host various shows, events, and lectures (and yes, Cabaret!)
Art Classes & Film Screenings
A not-for-profit performing arts center, Bethel Woods is dedicated to inspiring individuals through the arts and humanities. And trust us, they make good on their pledge.
