VERNON, NY – Vernon Downs officials and organizers of Woodstock 50, invited the public to an open house Monday to answer any questions the community might have.

They want the public to see what they have in mind for the 50th-anniversary celebration of Woodstock at the track and how they can plan to pull it off.

So far the public has not been too receptive to the idea of holding the concert at Vernon Downs.

Promoter Michael Lang says time is running out and the possibility of the event not happening could be a reality.

“If we don’t have a positive decision by tomorrow, then that’s something we’ll have to give a lot of thought to.”

So far the necessary permits needed to hold the 3-day festival have been denied by the Vernon Town Board.

Woodstock 50 organizers are hoping for a second chance at a permit when they present the festivals comprehensive plan to the town board Tuesday night.
