WOODSTOCK'S 50TH AT THE ROCK HALL
50 Years Later, Relive The Age of Aquarius
The year 1969 began with the Fifth Dimension’s recording of “The Age of Aquarius“rising quickly to No. 1 on the charts. It was a time of War – with a younger generation shouting for peace. It was a time filled with magical moments. A summer that included Neil Armstrong walking on the moon, and 26 days later 400,000 people walking onto a farm in New York for “3 Days of Peace and Music” that is remembered simply as Woodstock.
We remember that summer with a private event at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame where you enjoy both the music and a Moon Rock Party on the lawn (the full moon will rise over Cleveland that night at 9:22 pm.)
The Second night coincides with the Opening of Woodstock 50 years ago. It is a Rock Gala, a dinner and a musical stage production, a Woodstock Tribute Band, an audience in bell bottoms and tie-dyed shirts. It’s an evening of music and dancing, dining and remembering.
This Spectacular event aligns Rock n’ Roll History, with a moonwalk, youthful memories, and a No. 1 Hit Song.
When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius . . ..

Pull out those Tie-Dyed Shirts and Bell Bottoms, put flowers in your hair, grab your Love beads and join us in Cleveland as we kick off the Woodstock 50th Anniversary weekend.
Dinner is on your own this evening after hotel check-in.
Tonight, the doors of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame open at 7:00 pm for an exclusive four hours among the exhibits. It’s been said that visiting the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is like peeking into your favorite musician’s closet. The Hall’s permanent collection contains thousands of one-of-a-kind items ranging from musical instruments and song lyrics to quirky stage props and colorful costumes.
The ever-changing exhibits here feature such topics as The Roots of Rock & Roll, Cities & Sounds, and The British Invasion. We fully expect the Rock Hall will have a major exhibit on what is one of the greatest happenings and, perhaps the most pivotal moment in music history – Woodstock.
You will also find exhibits with film & video, interactive kiosks, reading material and, of course, plenty of music. We have hired many extra docents this evening to help as you enjoy Rock History. There will be cash bars should you want to rest a moment with a cocktail, hors d’oeurves and desserts.
A second unique feature of this evening is the Moon Rock Party starting at 9:00 pm on the Rock Hall Plaza. Just 26 days before Woodstock began, Neil Armstrong walked upon the moon, both events happened in the year “The Age of Aquarius” hit No. 1 on the charts. That’s like a time “when the Moon is in the Seventh House and Jupiter aligns with Mars.” Come and join us on a night when there’s a full moon over Cleveland at 9:22 pm, and “when Peace will guide the Planets and Love will steer the Stars.”
Day 2 – Cleveland Optional Tours – Woodstock Concert
After breakfast, the morning is at your leisure or you may choose to take an optional sightseeing tours.
This afternoon you’ll enjoy Lunch with the Queen, that is The Nautica Queen’s Luncheon Cruise, a unique adventure combining the best of dining and sightseeing in Cleveland. There’s a lavish buffet and musical entertainment while cruising under historic bridges and along the lake and riverfront.
The Second night’s event coincide with the Opening of Woodstock 50 years ago, a Rock Gala at the famous Cleveland Auditorium, a dinner dance and musical stage production. A Woodstock Tribute Band, audience in bell bottoms and tie-died shirts. An evening of music, dancing, dining, remembering.
We encourage everyone to dress for the event. Once you cross the doorway it is again the year 1969, cast away those conservative clothes and thoughts that came with maturity and enjoy the memories of your youth, celebrate “Peace & Music,” Rock on!
This evening is for all who were teenagers in 1969. But especially for those who were either too young, or not allowed to go to Woodstock. It’s also a modern, comfortable version of that rowdy concert, if you: “Are you old enough now”? “Will your Mom let you go now”? It’s time you “got to Woodstock.”
Day 3 – Departure
Time to go home, after a leisurely breakfast, reminiscing what the last two days meant to you…….
“We are stardust, we are golden, we are caught in the devil’s bargain,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.”
