  • Oddball Comedy Festival
    Hershey Theatre The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.

    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: 96th-Annual Durham Fair facet_type_id: a140e570-21dc-1033-bd9d-b2f8f8a93d51 html_text: |- When the first Durham Fair was held in 1916, about 2,000 people from the town and other surrounding communities visited the fairgrounds. Last year, more than 200,000 visitors from all over the region attended the Durham Fair, which has been voted Best Fair by Connecticut magazine for its combination of family activities, mouthwatering food, good music, and lack of robot overlords. This year, the agricultural fair features more than 1,000 animals and more than 10,000 exhibits, plus carnival rides and appearances by CMA Award–winner Martina McBride. It also entertains visitors with everything from a demolition derby to a comedic dog show to a wine festival. Though the fair has grown substantially since its early days, it is still run entirely by volunteers. Furthermore, it gives a portion of its profits back to the community via scholarships and the support of numerous local projects and events.
