It’s time to bust out the bell bottoms. This weekend marks the 50th anniversary of Woodstock and Phoenix has a handful of celebrations in store – from tribute bands to tie-dye pancakes.
50th Anniversary Celebration at The Van Buren
Don your best ‘60s gear and get down to a slew of tribute bands in Downtown Phoenix. The evening of groovy tunes will feature The Who Experience (A tribute to The Who), Anthony Aquarius Mystery (a tribute to Jimi Hendrix) and Creedence and Company (a Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute). Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair!

This hip morning hot spot will be celebrating “Squeeze-Stock” by serving up food and drink specials all weekend, including a tie-dye pancake and a psychedelic cocktail. Channel your inner hippie with the restaurant’s custom SnapChat filter, which will turn pictures into a ‘70s-style concert poster.
