Abbie Fest

YippieFest is a continuation of the spirit of the Abbie Hoffman Died For Our Sins theatre festival.

The Abbie Hoffman Fest ran for 28 years and was presented by Rich Cotovsky and Mary-Arrchie Theatre. Rich has given us his blessing to continue the tradition of presenting 3 days of entertainment in the Woodstock tradition.
