Summer Concerts in the Sullivan Catskills
Legends old and new have graced the stage of this 800-acre campus at the site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival in Bethel, NY.

From comedy to classical, country to rock, there’s a concert to please every palette at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.
In their 25th season, this year’s Weekend of Chamber Music Festival, Free Variations runs July 14th thru the 29th. The run-up to the festival starts with a free preview Informance, with music and discussion, on June 23rd. On July 14th, the festival kicks off with Barn Raising – a magical program of music and poetry, followed by a multi-course dinner with wine pairings.
Also in their 25th season, the Shandelee Music Festival brings internationally renowned classical artists from around the world in its much acclaimed Sunset Concert Series. The festival grounds are nestled on 75 acres of tranquil natural beauty with an indoor, climate-controlled pavilion where every seat is a great seat for quality listening and enjoyment.
