The Vision Statement of The Heron is “Hosting Events, Growing Food, Enriching Lives.” Our goal is to enrich you, Body, Mind and Spirit through the events we host, the food we produce and the programs we offer. During the Great Blue Heron Music Festival we offer workshops, presentations and activities to enrich your time here and perhaps ignite a new passion or interest! From Star Gazing to yoga to a fiddle workshop our goal is to have something to offer everyone!
The intention of the Revival Tent is to create a space for healing arts workshops and to help people connect to their bodies and spirits to enjoy and connect to the festival and to their lives. We also like to create a new theme or intention every year. The 2020 intention will be “JOY”. Through this intention, we hope to set an energy of deep respect for the land, for each other, and for ourselves.
At the Music Workshop Tent the program is centered on the heart and soul of the Heron: the music. Festival performers share their passion through leading hands-on workshops in fiddle, banjo, guitar, and harmonica as well as open jam sessions! Attendees of all ages and levels of experience are encouraged to visit the workshop tent. This experience leaves a lasting impression on all, and helps to spread the joy of the Heron and music out into the world.
The Earth Stewardship Tent is a place that generates awe, appreciation and
stewardship for the natural world. A variety of earth centered activities, including speakers, crafts, workshops, yoga and informational tables, help to enrich our earth connection and promote stewardship in a personal and sustainable manner
The Silver Heron Tent, located just south of the Earth Stewards Tent, is meant to accommodate those who desire a time of quiet contemplation and
conversation. Share some memories and leave your Heron story on our timeline, while enjoying the beauty of the pond and hills.
The Photo Booth is the place to make a memory to take home. Featuring our iconic Heron Art as a backdrop, fun costumes to dress up, or come as you are! Stop in and create a Heron Memory with your family or Campsite Crew!!
