Copy of Setting up the stage Rock Festival (July 1970)

This grainy photo appeared almost 50 years ago in the Chronicle, and is part of Bernice Sjoblom’s scrapbook about the Buffalo Party Convention and Pig Roast (aka Eatonville rock festival).

At the time these young people were setting up the scaffolding (around July 2), the festival had been banned by the prosecutors, people were already arriving for the event and the Buffalo Party organizers were threatening to appeal the decision.

As you all know, the show did go on.
