BALTIMORE — The U.S. Postal Service is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock Festival with a colorful Woodstock Forever stamp!

The stamp was dedicated on Thursday at a First Day of Issue event in New York.

“Woodstock was the most famous rock festival in history,” said Kevin McAdams, vice president, Delivery and Retail Operations, U.S. Postal Service. “The Postal Service commemorates the 50th anniversary of Woodstock by issuing a festive Forever stamp as we continue to remember significant events of the ’60s.”

The stamp art features an image of a dove along with the words “3 Days of Peace and Music,” evoking the original promotional poster for the festival.
