The next edition of a Flin Flon summer musical tradition takes place next week. Here's what you need to know about this year's Blueberry Jam Music Gathering:

The event will take place at the Flinty Campground and Flin Flon Station Museum from August 5-7, featuring a slate of local and regional musicians that will play a combined 38 hours of music.

It will be the fourth edition of the event, which began in 2018. The Jam was cancelled in 2020 due to pandemic-related concerns and was held but shortened to a one-day event in 2021 - this year's event will be the first Jam to be held in full since 2019.

Two stages will host performers - first, the main festival stage at the Flinty Campground (called the Campground stage by organizers) and a new stage at the Flin Flon Station Museum (the Museum stage) that will be used for the first time.

The nearby Rotary Wheel, which hosted shows during both of the original two Blueberry Jams, will not host performances this year - neither will Johnny's Social Club, which hosted the kickoff event for the 2019 event and several shows throughout that weekend.

The show will get on the road at the Museum stage with the Silver Evening Star Singers at 4:30 p.m. August 5, with entertainment starting at the Campground stage with Katarina Njegovan performing. The shows will end for the night at 10 p.m. on the Museum stage and 12:00 a.m. on the Campground stage. Both will restart at 2:30 p.m. August 6.

Sunday events, which will only take place at the Campground stage, will start with a gospel and hymn service at 11 a.m. before swinging into a full day of programming, ending at 8:30 p.m. after the final band, Rockkut, plays the last set of the event.

Organizers are looking for people to help out with gate duties at the two main entrances for the show - at Dadson Row and at the entrance of the Flin Flon Station Museum and Flinty Campground - as well as people to man 50/50 sales and donation bucket duties. The Flin Flon Rotary Club, which is handling a concession stand and the beer garden at the event, are still looking for volunteers to work shifts.

Possible volunteers are asked to contact the Flin Flon Arts Council at (204) 687-5974 or Dean Grove from the Flin Flon Rotary Club at (204) 923-0315 or bigisland5959@gmail.com to get involved.
