Welcome to Woodstock! Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and recognized as a Distinctive Destination by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the historic Square offers many shops and retail establishments in a unique and nostalgic atmosphere. Come spend the day shopping and relaxing in the quaint charm of the late-19th century Victorian buildings. And don't stop there! You'll also find many fine shops and businesses located throughout Woodstock.

You'll find everything from hand-crafted pottery, apparel, gifts and collectibles, toys, original fine art, antiques, gourmet foods, and exquisite jewelry to an eclectic mix of restaurants including a French creperie.

Throughout the year, Woodstock is host to many events, festivals, and fairs--from Fair Diddley, Dick Tracy Days, summer band concerts, farmers market, and HarvestFest to Groundhog Days--celebrating Woodstock's starring role as Punxatawney, PA in the 1992 movie Groundhog Day. And our beautiful Gothic-revival-style Opera House serves as the cultural entertainment center of Woodstock, featuring plays, concerts, and performances throughout the year including the nationally renowned Woodstock Mozart Festival each summer.

Not to be missed is Woodstock's Victorian Christmas celebration that begins each Thanksgiving weekend. The Square glows with thousands of miniature lights illuminating the buildings and trees for the annual Festival of Lights. Carolers stroll the streets and visitors can take horse-drawn carriage rides around the Square.

We hope you'll enjoy your visit to Woodstock, our shops, our restaurants, our businesses, and our community.

We're sure you'll visit often!
