Woodstock 50 concerns

July 09, 2019 10:33 PM

The Oneida County Sheriff says bringing the Woodstock 50 Festival to a local horse track on short notice could be a safety risk. 

Sheriff Rob Maciol says it would be impossible to ensure public safety with only 40 days notice. 


The on-again-of-again music festival has applied for a permit at the Vernon Downs Harness Track, after operators of the original festival pulled out last month. 

The Woodstock Festival has faced a series of other setbacks, including the loss of a financial partner and a production company.
