Monterey County Film Commission
May 12, 2017
The Monterey International Pop Festival marked a special time in cultural history for three days in 1967. It was where D.A. Pennebaker filmed “Monterey Pop,” the acclaimed and ground-breaking documentary that captured the spirit and sounds of that era and propelled the careers of many rock legends. It blends music and film and the overall scene at the extraordinary event held 50 years ago at the Monterey Fairgrounds.
The Monterey County Film Commission will present the “groovy” evening. Wear flowers in your hair and join the fun reminiscing with others who were there at the original festival. Even those who weren’t yet born in the 60s will enjoy a glimpse of what the youth and the music of the day were like at this Monterey celebration of the “Summer of Love.” Sponsored in part by grant from The Arts Council for Monterey County. Thanks to support from the Monterey County Board of Supervisors.
