About the Tour

Woodstock's street art is world-class. Meet local artist Rashied as he guides you through the streets, telling the story of Woodstock's art for the last time, just days before tragically passing away in a fire. His passion for the area spans a lifetime, and his inspirational community-building work with both tourists and locals tenaciously conveys what it means to have a big heart in a rapidly changing area. Please note, some of the artworks mentioned on this tour has since been removed or changed. But, this tour is a snapshot in time, and the storytelling and interviewee's outweigh the removal of some of the artworks.

Do be very careful. Woodstock used to be a no-go zone for tourists and cautious locals. There are areas where you should be very aware of your surroundings. Don't flash expensive items, be a little wary of strangers and keep your eyes open.

Directions were clear and information was interesting, but unfortunately a lot of the artwork no longer exists. you can see that many of them were painted over.

I loved the walk. I work nearby and seldom get a chance to appreciate this. Just a word of caution- don't go alone. There are some intimidating characters around.
