Welcome to the official
Blue Skies Music Festival

JULY 31st to AUGUST 2nd

For over four decades magic has happened for one weekend a year on a very special piece of Ontario wilderness near Clarendon, Ontario.

Like Brigadoon, Blue Skies Music Festival springs forth on the August long weekend. Then just as quickly disappears for another year. 

Blue Skies is one of a very small number of completely volunteer-run festivals. Every facet of the festival's operation is performed by volunteers, from booking the acts to cleaning the loos.

If that isn't magic, what is?

Come experience Blue Skies!


are available in advance at the ticket outlets listed below. Day passes are also available at the festival gate Saturday and Sunday mornings at 8 AM when the gate opens. 

Friends from Ottawa please note...

the Ottawa Folklore Center has unfortunately closed its doors after years of serving the community. Blue Skies day passes are no longer available for advance purchase at that outlet. We would LOVE to see you at the festival! Please visit one of the other outlets or come and purchase your day tickets at the gate Saturday and Sunday.

See you soon!

Day Pass Ticket Outlets

New for Day Passers in 2015
The 180 parking spots in Parking Lot P2 are now reserved for folks using day passes. Less walking, hurrah!


For the last 36 years, our weekend camping passes have sold out. To allow more people a chance to attend, each spring we put ticket requests in a weekend camping pass lottery. We recommend you come on a day pass to get a feel for what Blue Skies is all about, and while here sign up for the mailing list at the Info Booth so you will get the information you need if you want to enter the lottery.


For more information call Oskar at (613) 279-2610
