Please Be Advised: 

Unfortunately, due to the spread of COVID-19 Flin Flon’s Blueberry Jam Music Gathering has been postponed until the summer of 2021. This was a difficult decision for the board to make; however, in the interest of public safety it was simply to difficult to determine what Public Health orders will be in place for August. Many summer events across the globe have either been cancelled or postponed for these exact reasons, and it would be unethical to treat our festival any differently. Public health and safety is our top priority and we will continue act accordingly until the COVID-19 pandemic is completely under control.

Will This be the End of Flin Flon’s Blueberry Jam Music Gathering?

Absolutely not! The Blueberry Jam team will work creatively with our artists and performers to keep the spirit of Blueberry Jam alive through online offerings, both of previous events and of newly produced material. As soon as it can be done safely, the BBJ committee will jump at the chance to share live face-to-face music with you again!

What is Flin Flon's Blueberry Jam Music Gathering?
An annual 3-day music festival designed for musicians and music lovers to come camp out, meet new people, dance, enjoy beautiful Flin Flon and most importantly jam with other musicians.  All located at The Flin Flon Tourist Bureau & Campground, off Highway 10A, at the eastern edge of Flin Flon Manitoba; adjoining the Station Museum and the Flinty Statue.

A mix of local and out of town performers of various experience and genres will perform continuously on two stages, one outdoors and one indoor at the Rotary Wheel.  

Help Keep The Party Going!  Inspired by The Tennents Musician Reunion.
