The Heron

The Heron is dedicated to creative enterprises, organic farming and sustainable land stewardship. We are home of The Great Blue Heron Music Festival and our farm, Green Heron Growers.

At The Heron we offer dynamic music festivals, organically raised foods, culinary adventures, educational events and wellness workshops. We nourish our community through shared experiences that enrich the bonds between people, food, music and the arts.

We invite you to share in the magic of The Heron.

Great Blue Heron Music Festival

Western New York's Greatest Music Festival

The Great Blue Heron Music Festival delivers an eclectic musical lineup that the whole family can enjoy. Three days and nights are filled with national and regional acts on three stages highlighting Americana roots, rock, reggae, zydeco, swing, old time, hip-hop, and bluegrass styles.

The Blue Heron has been a homecoming, for many, since 1992.
