Blue Skies Music Festival 2021
will be a Virtual Festival

View the Virtual 2021 Program…

July 30th to August 1st

It will be the very best it can be under the circumstances.

There will be no festival at the site this year


We know how much Blue Skies means to all of us.
We ask everyone to respect this decision and not come to the site this year.
The land will have an opportunity to rest.
We will meet at Blue Skies again but, sadly, not in 2021.

Once again, we know that even though this is absolutely the best decision for the health and safety of our community, it is still difficult to imagine another year without all the live music, workshops and hugs at the Blue Skies Music Festival.

Right now we are busy organizing an on-line event for the August long weekend, with Magoo as our Emcee. Visit 2021 Festival News to keep up-to-date with news and plans as they develop and to check out all the fun we had last year on our laptops with Discord and YouTube.

Thank you for understanding. Thank you for loving Blue Skies. Thank you for staying home and staying safe. We’ll look for you at the Blue Skies on line event. To volunteer contact

Yours in music and community.

2021 Blue Skies Music Festival T-Shirts & Hoodies

2021 Blue Skies Music Festival T-Shirt 2021 Blue Skies Music Festival T-Shirt

You know you want one.

You can’t go to a virtual music festival but, thanks to our ingenious and resourceful t-shirt Hat, you can get the t-shirt.

Here is your link to order the online Blue Skies Music Festival 2021 t-shirt:

This is a fundraiser for both the festival and Ironclad Graphics, the locally-owned, Kingston business that has printed all our merchandise since 2016

In this pre-sale model, once they get a certain number of orders, they’ll start printing the t-shirts. You pay the shipping or, if you are in the Kingston area, there is free curb side pick-up on specific days.




50 Years of Blue Skies

Getting Ready for Blue Skies 50th.

Let the banjos blare and the bagpipes bluster. Blue Skies is going to reach its 50th birthday in just a few years.

Our Golden Anniversary is roaring down the track and it’s time to hop on board. We’re already thinking about ways to celebrate this milestone. Ideas are being tossed around including thoughts about books, thoughts about movies and thoughts about what other thoughts we might think.

We know for sure we’ll be looking for your stories and memories to share. And art-works, and poems, and songs, and photographs. We also need folks who are willing to help get this all underway. Whatever you can bring is exactly what we need.

If you’d like to help in any way, please e-mail us at

New and exciting ideas are also encouraged.

Let’s really whoop up a storm to celebrate our upcoming 50 years of music and community.
