This weekend alone, downtown Woodstock will be home to a handful of rocking events! Be sure to head on out to one of the great events planned for this weekend to show your support of all the great things Woodstock is working on.
Friday Night Live
It’s time for the monthly Friday Night Live celebration, kicking off the month of June this Friday with the “Main Street Luau” theme. To really get you in the spirit, various downtown stores will be handing out Hawaiian leis, and many will feature live music at their storefronts.
Vendors this month for Friday Night Live include Fire Stone Wood Fired Pizza and Grill, Seven Arrows, Cupcakelicious, Foxtale Book Shoppe, and Heartworks Studio and Roomscapes Gallery, to name a few. To vies the entire participating merchants list, view the event page here.
Elm Street Cultural Arts Village will feature Teen Arts Night from 6-8pm at the City Center.
Sponsored by Elm Street’s Teen Arts Guild (TAG). Encourage your teens to bring an instrument, a karaoke cd, poetry, artwork, or short stories to share with other creative, arts-minded teens. $5 cash at the door provides a slice of pizza and a soda at intermission. Ages 13-15 will need to have a parent sign them in and out at the door. Then, at 9:00pm, the iThink Improv Troupe will perform improv comedy. Come get some laughs! All seats are $5 each.
