Free Woodstock concert at Peacock Park


Woodystock is back for it's second year today, September 27. The free benefit concert scheduled is from 2 to 8 pm at Peacock Park. Gates open at 2 pm; the Fritz & Franz Beer Garden opens and the DJ starts, the live music is from 4 to 8 pm.

DJ Brett Beats Bailey; cutting-edge Chicago based violinist, Katarina Visnevska; Colombian reggae/Latin group, Magical Beat featuring Mara Prada; adored Miami locals, Robby Hunter Band; Vancouver based indie soul band, The Booms Booms and South Florida reggae legends, are all performing; Fourth Dimension will headline the show. The event’s title sponsor is Coral Gables-based CFH Group.

Woodystock is a grassroots event for music and art lovers. Along with the concert, local artists and food vendors will round out the event. Proceeds from the concert will benefit The Woody Foundation, a nonprofit organization created to raise funds for the recovery of people with spinal cord injuries. The concert is free; $20 donations are appreciated.


The Woody Foundation’s current major initiative is The Woody Pack, which is a collection of assistive devices for people who have sustained spinal cord injuries or are living with paralysis. Woody Pack backpacks are free and are designed to help regain a sense of independence. The included devices are used to aid during certain tasks such as eating or talking on the phone. All items in The Woody Pack are included to help improve quality of life – such items are not covered by insurance. 

“We’re looking forward to our second edition of Woodystock, it’s an incredible opportunity for us to raise money and spread awareness about the Woody Foundation and the free Woody Pack. I want more people to know about our foundation and the Woody Pack. I have eliminated the need for help from others in various situations, it’s helped me a lot and it can help others," said James "Woody" Beckham.
