2020 Festival Canceled – How You Can Help

It is with saddened hearts that we must announce our rescheduled August dates will be
unfeasible. We have been doing everything we could to ensure the best chance of having a Blue Ox Music Festival this year. Unfortunately, this will not be possible. A gathering of our festival’s size would not be safe nor allowed under Eau Claire City-County Health guidelines.
All ticket buyers should have already received an e-mail with instructions for receiving

If no action is taken your tickets and campsites will be good for our 2021 festival
dates, tentatively  planned for June 10-12, 2021 (subject to change).

If Blue Ox has ever made an impact in your life, whether it was through the people you met here who are now your best friends, to opening your mind to new music and creative expression, to an unforgettable camping adventure, then please consider contributing if you can to help keep the experience alive into the future. In addition to helping assure our family owned festival’s well being, your contribution will also help cover the operational costs of putting this virtual event on, the performing artists and their crew.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Thank you for being such a supportive community! We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021!!!

We will greatly miss seeing our Blue Ox Family this year. This festival means as much to us as it
does to all of you. The friendships and camaraderie surrounding this community over the last 5 years has been truly amazing. There will be brighter days, when we will all be able to come together and party in the Pines. Until then focus on your local community, treat each other kindly, and take care of yourselves. We look forward to seeing you all again!

Going forward into 2020 Blue Ox will be looking into several possibilities to provide our local music community entertainment options. This may include limited capacity campouts, virtual
events, or a hybrid of the two. These decisions will be made with the guidance of public health
officials. In addition, we will be airing past Blue Ox sets on Thursdays on YouTube and Facebook. Look for announcements, follow us on social media and YouTube, and keep in touch!

Take care,
From all of us at Blue Ox Music Festival
