When a few good friends decided to have a holiday picnic in the rolling hills of Chautauqua County back in the summer of 1992, they never expected that they were laying the groundwork for a summer tradition that brings back thousands of music lovers each year. But that is exactly what the Great Blue Heron Festival has become – an annual celebration of music and friendship. With a wide variety of live music on three stages – including the intimate Tiger Maple Stage at the Cafe in the Woods and a big top Dance Tent that swings through the night – plus workshops, drum circles, and kids & teen activities, 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 sunny fields and shady woods that grace the property.

The three-day event includes more than just music. Between performances, you can go for a swim at the spring-fed pond, hike or bike along forested trails, or relax at the cozy Café in the Woods. The festival midway also offers an exotic variety of fresh-cooked fare, as well as artists and vendors offering a wide variety of clothing, jewelry, musical instruments, and other gifts.

Each year, we have all come together to form a truly harmonious community. The loyalty, enthusiasm and approval of all who have attended has become our true inspiration.
