Zoomer Radio presents “Woodstock Weekend: A 50th Anniversary Tribute” at CNE’s Bandshell Park, August 17 & 18.

The three-day iconic experience, billed as “An Aquarian Experience: 3 Days of Peace and Music” opened on August 15, 1969 in a dairy farm in New York State.. The event would later be known as simply “Woodstock” and became synonymous with the counterculture movement of the 1960s.

This August, the CNE celebrates the 50th Anniversary of this legendary event with musical tributes to the iconic artists who performed at the Festival including: Janis Joplin, Creedence Clearwater, Sly and the Family Stone, The Band, Crosby Stills Nash and Young (Neil Young), Paul Butterfield Blues Bands, Santana, The Grateful Dead and Jimi Hendrix. Joni Mitchell will also be featured since she wrote a song performed at Woodstock.

Grab your love beads, flower crowns and tie-died clothing and let your inner “hippie” run free in this sensational sixties’ experience.

Be sure to check out the CNE‘s Hippie Fest in Bandshell Park Saturday & Sunday (August 17 & 18, 11 am to dusk). Scoop up 60s style clothing and retro lifestyle collectables.
