Woodstock's fifth annual summer celebration of food, culture, and the arts showcases some of the area's best features: music, theater, film, art, and food. The day-long festival on June 22, held at Woodstock's Andy Lee Field and adjoining Colony Café and Photosensualis, features special guests Chevy and Jayni Chase, who will be honored for their lifetime commitment to the environment, along with local honorees Happy Traum, rock `n' roll photographer Catherine Sebastian, and Hudson River Venture's Sean Eldridge. Food activist and keynote speaker Ben Hewitt (pictured right), author of The Town That Food Saved, will discuss regionalized agriculture, and several films will be screened at Photosensualis followed by Q&As with the filmmakers. The barn fest also includes live music, kid's activities, an art auction, and a Hudson Valley food truck round up.
