Hoodstock started in 2004 as a neighborhood event and has since grown into a major fundraiser to benefit children and adults with disabilities. Last year, more than 400 people attended and the event raised over $82,000.

“Dig out those bell bottoms or come as you are to rock out in the eclectic setting of the American Visionary Art Museum in support of a great cause,” said Diane Coughlin, president and CEO of Unified Community Connections.
