Blue Skies Fundraising

Blue Skies Music Festival is putting some FUN into our fundraising for this year's FREE virtual festival

1. A spiffy Silent Auction runs for 10 days starting at 5 PM June 12, with LOTS of unique items.

2. Vintage t-shirts from Blue Skies past glory years. Based on response to a Facebook poll done this Spring, you can buy an assortment of t-shirts, hoodies and pants with the iconic t-shirt designs from 1982, 1985, 1987 and 1991.

3. Special Blue Skies postcards with pictures that our expert panel judged have the biggest wow factor and are sure to get everyone at least thinking of sending postcards in the mail.

4. Reprints of three Blue Skies posters from back in the day (1985, 1988 and 1990) when cut and paste meant exactly that and there was nary a computer in Central Frontenac. A more modest 11 x 17 size, perfect for framing and proudly displaying on your wall. As the kids say today, Epic!

We will not be selling tickets to Blue Skies 2021. Instead, we are fundraising and accepting donations to support the musicians whose income has suffered from live venues being shutdown due to the pandemic.

Any funds in excess of what we need for Blue Skies Music Festival 2021 will be directed to the great work of Blue Skies in the Community and ongoing operating expenses.

You’ll find information about the festival and more in the program: https://blueskiesvirtual2021.ca

Donations are very welcome. See the Donation page for more information on ways to donate.
