Keeping the music Alive at Whitesbog - Help Us build the New Stage!

 Join us in a Crowdfunding Campaign to help build the New Stage at Whitesbog - We have made - The Music of Whitesbog - a compilation of music from the Musicians of Whitesbog. Proceeds from this CD will go into the building of the New Stage.

We have built the 1st "Stage" of the New Stage, which was a great asset to the 2019 Blueberry Festival -

We still need to raise more funds to Build the Roof!
Thank You for your donations!

Music has always been a part of Whitesbog and it is continuing to grow. We host the bi-monthly Blueberry Jam, September Saturdays Music events and of course the Blueberry Festival going on 34 Years! We have more in the works to come!

Whitesbog Preservation Trust has just approved the designing and building of a New Stage at Whitesbog to replace the big brown trailer stage, which has gotten quite a bit of use over it's years, but has become a maintenance issue and when not in use , a bit of an eyesore to the aesthetics of the village.


Stage Idea

We have designed a multi use stage that will fit into the village surroundings utilizing cedar siding and the red metal roofing we see in our buildings throughout the village. Below is a concept design of the New Stage.
