Yasgur’s / Bethel: Bethel Couple Decide Not To Stage Event [Record Online]

BETHEL – Roy Howard and Jeryl Abramson have decided to cancel their planned event and turn away potentially thousands of people planning to camp this weekend on their Yasgur Farm property during the three-day Phish concert at nearby Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.

Abramson said the couple can not risk additional fines from the town. The town of Bethel has fined them $25,000 alledging they violated a 2007 injunction by advertising the event, and issued four violations for illegal camping already.

“I can’t do this,” Abramson said. “We can’t afford paying the violations. We have received four already and that is just the beginning. They are going to nail us to the cross.”
