Is it a semi-centennial? Or a demi-centennial? Or maybe a hemi-centennial?
Whatever it is, it’s Blue Skies 50 and it’s coming up fast. In 2023 we’ll be celebrating 50 years of Blue Skies and we’re not going to let that slip by quietly. Time to raise a hoopla.
Here’s what is happening so far.

New 50 Years book and film
We’re talking about a Blue Skies 50th book and, if circumstances allow, a new Blue Skies film. A few other notions have been bounced around too. If we’re going to make this all happen, we’ll need your help. We need your memories, stories, works of art, photos, poems, random musings, energy, cha cha cha. In these bizarre times, wouldn’t it be nice to add a Blue Skies focus to your life?
We need volunteers to assist with the various projects. If you have the time – and ideas – we’d love to have you join us on this wonderful project.
If you can help, have any submissions for the new book or want any further information, please e-mail them to: 50Years@BlueSkiesMusicFestival.ca
