BOUCKVILLE, NY – After a year off due to the pandemic, organizers of the Woodsfest Music and Arts Festival were looking forward to its return to Woods Valley.

Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans after a devastating tornado left massive damage to the site back in July. But you know the old saying, “The show must go on”.

Woodsfest found a new home this year at the Cider House Showfield and Campground in Bouckville.

Festival goers enjoyed a wide range of music over the two day family-friendly event. In addition to the music, there were also vendors, food trucks, and plenty of craft beverages on site.

“I think the change of venue, and news of the tornado, probably didn’t help us,” said Tim Woods, the owner of Woodsfest Music and Arts. “The problem with low attendance for a festival doesn’t mean the bills are less. We don’t know what the end result is yet, but if there’s any profit from the event, it will be donated to the community of Westernville”.

Woods says repairs are already in motion and he looks forward to next year’s Woodsfest returning to its proper home at Woods Valley.
