The Experience Woodstock Card

What do a lunch at Oriole 9, a dinner at Joshua's Cafe, tickets to a Marc Black concert (at the Kleinert/James Arts Center on June 11), a soil test kit from H. Houst & Son, copies from Catskill Art and Office Supply, and kitty litter from Woofstock have in common? They are all purchases made by a single cardholder in just a few days with the new Experience Woodstock Card (EWC).

Available from the Woodstock Chamber to visitors and locals for just $25, the EWC provides a way to experience Woodstock in depth, with a festival of special offers. It's valid for unlimited use through the end of the year, enabling savings of money, time, gasoline and the environment. Close to 60 offers are currently listed on the Chamber web site: Link to and click on the animated banner at the top of the page. New offers, including weekend performance specials, are posted every Thursday.
