It’s back! Join us for the return of our grooviest annual event, the 2nd Annual Woodstock Revival on Saturday, August 11th from 9am – 2pm.
Last year was a complete success with an attendance of over 10,000. We’re proud to bring this type of event to support our community, vendors, and downtown merchants in the offseason.
This year’s event will be bigger and better than ever, spanning three blocks of downtown Sarasota with interactive activities for the whole family. (The Sarasota Farmers Market will be open for normal operating hours, 7am – 1pm.)
Retro revival band, Paisley Craze, will take the big stage in our “Woodstock Village”, located on 1st Street. Paisley Craze is a five-piece Sarasota band playing favorites from the 1960s, covering a wide range of styles of that historic decade – from the British invasion featuring the Beatles, to the sunny and light pop music of the Beach Boys, the mind-blowing psychedelic rock of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jefferson Airplane, and the groovin’ dance sounds of Motown.
Activities will be available for kids including a rock wall, high jumpers, and FREE Photo Booth, peace sign painting and kids water slide provided by the Sarasota Farmers Market. Read below to learn about more exciting events and activities taking place!
