Woodstock Reunion 1979 was a concert on Saturday 8 September 1979 at Woodstock Festival, by concert promoter Richard Nader.[1] It was one of several "Woodstock reunion" events that year.

Performers included Paul Butterfield and Rick Danko,[1] Canned Heat, Richie Havens, Jorma Kaukonen, Country Joe McDonald, John Sebastian, Michael Shrieve, Stephen Stills, Leslie West, and Johnny Winter.[2][3]

This reunion concert faced organizational difficulties, much like the original Woodstock, though on a far smaller scale. On Friday the 7th, the day before the show, over 1000 young people showed up and camped out at the site; prompting complaints from neighbours. The next day there was a delay in opening the venue gates, due to security concerns by the concert-promoter; which almost resulted in a revocation of the permit and cancellation of the show by local officials.

Recordings of the concert were broadcast on the King Biscuit Flower Hour.[1][2] A bootleg CD titled Live at Parr Meadows also exists.[1]
