It looks like there will be no Woodstock 50 concert at Vernon Downs this year — or possibly anywhere at all — after the town voted unanimously on Tuesday night to uphold its application denial.
Organizers released a statement after the decision, thanking everyone who supported them in recent weeks as it pushed to have the anniversary event moved to the upstate race track.
“Woodstock 50 is disappointed that the Town of Vernon has passed up the opportunity to hold the historic 50th Anniversary Festival by denying our robust and thoughtful proposal,” the statement said. “We regret that those in Vernon who supported Woodstock have been deprived of the once-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of the rebirth of a cultural peace movement that changed the world in 1969 and is what the world needs now. We want to thank the artists who stood by us. We are grateful for the support of Vernon Downs and its generous owner Jeffrey Gural.”
The rejection marks the third time in two weeks that Woodstock 50 has been denied — with the latest coming from the Vernon Planning Board.
