UPDATE: Woodstock 50 Festival has been cancelled.

Until mid-summer 2019, all indications were that the Woodstock 50 Festival was indeed happening. The half-century anniversary of the iconic festival was scheduled to take place August 16-18, 2019, and boasted a diverse lineup of over 75 bands over three days on four stages.

While the original festival took place on a dairy farm in Bethel, New York , Woodstock 50 was set to take place about 170 miles west in Watkins Glen, New York—in the middle of the Finger Lakes regions.


How to Get a Cheap Rental Car for Woodstock 50


Book early. The best time to book your rental car is soon as you know you're heading to Woodstock 50, since some rental agencies may run out of vehicles. Unlike airline tickets, rental car reservations can usually be canceled without a penalty. The best strategy is to ask AutoSlash for a quote early on, and then keep checking to see if prices go down.

Track your reservation. It's a time-consuming task to constantly check for lower rates but AutoSlash can do this for you at no extra cost. After you book your car, ask AutoSlash to track your reservation. We'll let you know if there's a price drop so you can rebook at the lower rate.
