Woodstock en Beauce was a yearly weekend-long music festival held in St-Ephrem-de-Beauce, Quebec, Canada. It was created in 1995 with the intention to re-create the atmosphere of the original Woodstock Festival in 1969, emphasizing on the atmosphere of peace and fun. The first edition of the festival attracted about 5,000 people, but it now attracts crowds of over 78,000 people. It has been nominated three times at the ADISQ awards in the category for the event of the year.

On October 17, 2014, it was announced that the 2014 edition would be the final one, putting an end to the festival after 20 years.[1]

On February 19, 2015, it was revealed on their Facebook page that the music festival will make a comeback in 2016. However, there will be no festival in 2015, making it the first year since the foundation of the event to be skipped.
