The town of Woodstock will take a trip back in time Saturday during the Vintage Woodstock Festival.
The annual festival will feature food, music, dancing, a beer and wine garden, games and more. Musical entertainment from the Judy Chops will begin at 3 p.m., while Kanye Twitty will take the stage at 6 p.m. Food vendors from Rutz’s Backyard BBQ, I’Guana Taco, Tony’s Pizza, Smiley’s Ice Cream, and E and O Kettle Corn will be onsite.
Woodstock Director of Marketing and Events Katie Mercer said that one of the new things this year will be chalk art pictures that will be done by artists from the Valley Educational Center for the Creative Arts. The festival will also feature games such as adult- and child-sized versions of Connect Four, a 64-foot long bubble wrap pad, and a giant version of Jenga. Mercer also promised a new game debuting at the festival, but she wanted to keep it a surprise.
Aside from the festival, there will be a public input event at 1:30 p.m. at the back of the historic courthouse to discuss ideas for a future public space in front of the old jail in Woodstock. Mercer, who also serves as the enhancement coordinator with the Woodstock Enhancement Committee, said that community members welcome for this event.
“We invite all community members to stop in and learn about the history of the space and share how they envision its future,” Mercer said.
The festival will begin earlier this year, with the event starting at 3 p.m. Admission is free.
