Powder Ridge Music Festival

Powder Ridge Mountain Park in Middlefield hosted a two-day music festival Oct. 4 and 5 with 20 bands performing for hundreds of listeners at the base of the mountain's ski slopes. In 1970 the mountain almost played host to another rock festival with an announced lineup of musicians including Janis Joplin, Allman Brothers, Little Richard, Van Morrison and Fleetwood Mac. The event was canceled, but 30,000 ticket holders still arrived for the festival.
