Slide Show 2014


A summer tradition since 1992, the Great Blue Heron Music Festival is an annual celebration that brings thousands of music lovers to the rolling hills of Western New York each July. With a wide variety of live original music on three stages – including the Main Stage, the intimate Tiger Maple Stage and a big-top Dance Tent that swings through the night – plus instrument workshops, dance lessons, and activities for both children and teens, the festival provides many ways to enjoy the Independence Day weekend. And that is why so many music fans come back year after year, sharing the event with family and friends while camping out among the breezy fields and shady woods that grace the property.
