The Weston Historical Society transports you back to a time when young people of the ‘counterculture’ generation gathered for an historic happening of music, peace and love. Presenting "Westonstock" – a six-hour music festival featuring three bands and 15 musicians, with a 60s car show, and kids crafts and activities on Saturday, September 15 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the Coley Homestead at 104 Weston Road, Weston CT.  

Westonstock will feature Old School Revue and popular NY Vocalist Susan Didrichsen with The Saugatuck Horns, a versatile six-piece classic 60s R&B band decked out in vintage 60s attire.
