Woodstock '79 was a rock concert that took place at Madison Square Garden, New York City in 1979, the year of the 10th anniversary of the original Woodstock Festival.

Some of the musicians of the original festival of 1969[citation needed] met to celebrate the spirit of freedom of the Woodstock Festival.[according to whom?] There were jam sessions with Richie Havens, Taj Mahal, Country Joe and the Fish, Canned Heat, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter and Elliott Randall. Also appearing were Rick Danko, Johnny Winter, Stephen Stills, and Paul Butterfield, among others.[citation needed]

In 1991 an 80-minute video with the title The Celebration Continues — Woodstock '79 was released.
