86th Annual Woodstock Library Fair


Library Fair Sets Peace and Love as Example

Once a year, the annual Library Fair offers people a new lens on their lives, a brief respite from the everyday grind in order to remember our shared ideals. The 86th Annual Woodstock Library Fair’s theme is WOODSTOCK: CITIZENS OF THE WORLD.

Library Fair 2017

The Library Fair is a positive answer to the negativity and fear mongering of our times, offering an idealistic demonstration of artists
–Woodstock artists–as citizens of a shrinking planet. Art unites the world. If artists anywhere are not free to travel, how can they be “Good Will Ambassadors?

The Fair will have an international flavor–food, dress, artwork on the fence, & games.
