VERNON, N.Y. -- Details about the potential for Woodstock 50 at Vernon Downs continue to come together.

The state Department of Health says because the event does not include camping, or overnight accommodations – a "mass gathering permit" is not necessary.

However, Woodstock 50 must meet sanitary codes requirements and public functions with attendance of 5,000 people requirements, and obtain a permit for that.

The information submitted by Woodstock 50 is still being evaluated by the DOH, in collaboration with Oneida County, and other state officials.
