Woodstock '79 was a rock concert that took place at the Felt Forum at Madison Square Garden, New York City on August 24 and 25, 1979, the year of the 10th anniversary of the original Woodstock Festival.

The word "Woodstock" did not appear in the advertisement for the event, it was simply billed as "Celebration: Ten Years Later."

Some of the musicians performed at the original festival of 1969. There were jam sessions with Richie Havens, Taj Mahal, Alhaji Bai Konte, Dembo Konte, Country Joe and the Fish, Canned Heat, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter and Elliott Randall. Also appearing were Rick Danko,[1] Jorma Kaukonen, Stephen Stills, Paul Butterfield, and Johnny Winter [2] among others.

In 1991, an 80-minute video with the title The Celebration Continues:Woodstock '79[3] was released.
