August 2019 will mark the 50th anniversary of the extraordinary but forgotten Seattle Pop Festival, a three-day event held at Gold Creek in Woodinville that attracted many top acts at the time: Chuck Berry, The Byrds, Bo Diddley, The Doors, The Guess Who, Led Zeppelin, Santana, Ike & Tina Turner, and Alice Cooper, among others.
Do you know if anyone is planning a 50th anniversary version of the Seattle Pop Festival in Woodinville? I reached out to Woodinville city government and they are unaware of anyone planning such an event. I also reached out to Woodinville Wine Country and they have not responded.
Someone should do it. It could be a tourism boon for the town, and would be right in what is now our main tourism district.
