47 miles from Chicago, Woodstock is on the edge of the Chicago metropolitan area. We’re close to the city with a small town, rural personality all our own.
Rich with Victorian architecture, a town square that seems frozen in time, and a world-renowned Opera House, Woodstock also has an independent streak brimming with creativity and entrepreneurship. Artists and locally-owned businesses are embraced. Our school system is a leader in dual language education. And music, whether rock, folk, jazz, country or classical, fills the air indoors and out most every night.
The Laughstock Comedy Festival takes place on the historic Woodstock Square on August 17 & 18, 2018! Woodstock's first comedy festival features national touring comedians and local talent from the Chicagoland area learn more at Laughstockfestival.com!
