A Concord Salute to Woodstock: SAN FRANCISCO AIRSHIP: Jefferson Airplane Evolution
August 16 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In August of 1969, a musical trumpet went off all over the world. Woodstock attracted over 500,000 thousand people and launched the careers of many today’s familiar Rock and Roll icons. As a salute to that cultural phenomenon, the City of Concord presents a three-day Woodstock celebration in downtown Concord on August 15, 16, and 17 with tributes to Santana, The Jefferson Airplane and Jimi Hendrix.
And musicians of all ages and abilities take note! Friday and Saturday events will open with a Community Drum Jam starting at 4pm. And singer-songwriter guitar circles will commence on the lawn in front of the main stage at the conclusion of the concert.
To add to the Friday and Saturday festivities, the park will be sprinkled with strolling street performers, Burning Man style art pieces and a few specially selected arts and crafts vendors.
Peace out in Concord Aug 15-17 with a 3-day celebration of Peace, Love and Music!
