Bethel Woods Center for the Arts inspires, educates, and empowers individuals through the arts and humanities by presenting a diverse selection of culturally-rich performances, popular artists, and community and educational programming.  Located 90 miles from New York City at the site of the 1969 Woodstock festival in Bethel, NY, the lush 800-acre campus includes a Pavilion Stage amphitheater with seating for 15,000, an intimate 440-seat indoor Event Gallery, the award-winning Museum at Bethel Woods, and a Conservatory for arts education programming.

Through the in-depth study and exhibition of the social, political, and cultural events of the 1960s, as well as the preservation of the historic site of the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, Bethel Woods educates individuals about the issues and lessons of the decade while inspiring a new generation to contribute positively to the world around them.

The Bethel Woods campus celebrates the natural beauty, cherished traditions and bountiful products of Sullivan County. Over 2,000 trees have been planted on the rolling grounds where trails and clusters of buildings open up to vistas of the surrounding landscape. The architecture expresses the familiar forms of the region’s barns and rural structures. Strong cedar posts and timber construction, copper roofs, stone from local quarries and native plantings convey a sense of belonging to the countryside and make visitors feel welcome and neighbors feel at home.

The not-for-profit organization relies on the generous support of individuals, corporations, and foundations to develop and sustain programs that improve the quality of life in the region and beyond.

County Players was born in 1958. During our lifetime, we have presented over 200 productions and have served thousands of theatre-goers who continue to reward our efforts with their loyal attendance. In 1977, we acquired the old Academy Theatre in the Village of Wappingers Falls, and through countless hours of volunteer efforts, we have turned a crumbling relic into a living theatre – The County Players Falls Theatre. We paid off our mortgage, continue to make improvements to our building, and still manage to keep our prices at an affordable level. Our promise for the future is to continue on the path of fiscal responsibility, theatrical improvement, and entertainment!
