Town of Vernon denies Woodstock 50 request for festival at Vernon Downs

Update: Woodstock promoters blame “political forces” for the permit denial and vow to appeal.

Syracuse, N.Y. -- The troubled Woodstock 50 festival suffered another blow today as the town of Vernon denied an application to hold the festival at Vernon Downs in mid August.

The application for a temporary event permit was filed too late and is “dramatically incomplete,” said town attorney Vincent Rossi.

Woodstock or Vernon Downs can file an appeal with the town planning board within five days, Rossi said.

Northwest Woodsman: I’d reject it also. Can you imagine the cleanup required afterward?

The track is 500 yards from the 3/4 residential downtown of this little quiet village. It's a bad idea.
