Piebird Picnic 2019

The Piebird Picnic Concert

The Piebird Picnic Concert is an outdoor daytime event where folks can come experience being part of something special at Piebird Farm Sanctuary- take a stroll through the sanctuary, dance to live music, share a picnic with friends (bring your own lunch or purchase something from our vegan snack tent), be part of an afternoon music-filled time that supports the animal-friends in sanctuary and is just plain fun! Live music brings everyone together - let's celebrate all the good things in life by sharing a few hours under the sun with our smiles and good vibes!


Adult tickets $20 in advance or $25 at the gate. (Kids 10 and under $10 at gate, the very young are free). Advanced price tickets are now closed, regular priced tickets are now avialable at the gate.

We want you all to participate, so if payment is a hindrance to you, please contact us privately: pay what you can on a sliding scale or we'll make another arrangement.

Questions: love@piebird.ca 705.724.1144
(We love when you buy your tickets in advance as it helps us plan better but if you are paying at the gate or planning on buying some snacks here please remember to bring cash as we do not have a debit machine etc)

Ron Nigrini

Ron Nigrini

(Commanda, Ontario.) Ron is one of our favourite musicians so it’s a true humbling honour to have him share some songs at the Picnic this year! After five decades in the scene, Ron has announced he is retiring from live music this year so we’re extra grateful for him coming to share his peaceful presence at the Picnic.

Jennifer Plummer

Jennifer Plummer

(North Bay area.) We're super excited to annouce that Jennifer will play the Picnic! Jennifer played a few “real vibe” concerts here many years ago and this year we reconnected when she wrote an anthem for a local campaign to protect endangered species.

Things to know:

This event is rain or shine! Bring what you need to be comfortable! (umbrellas, sun hats, sun screen, etc!) We'll have a water station to refill your water bottles.
Please leave your dog-friend at home.
We support helping you bring a vegan lunch if you are not purchasing food from us! If you need ideas, let us know!
The Picnic is a very family friendly event but it's really important that you keep your child within arms reach at all times.

As an inclusive safe space, all are welcome! The general rule is to be nice and respectful. Any hateful language or actions that make others feel unsafe will not be tolerated.

The land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Nipissing First Nation Anishnabe. In solidarity with all who work to disrupt and dismantle colonial structures.

* We are proud that our events are 100% community-funded. Sustainability starts with self-sufficiency, this is a core philosophy here at Piebird and natural that we apply it to our music and community events as well. By not receiving outside funding or grants for arts events, we are encouraged to keep things simple and small. As a community we are all given a greater sense of being needed and belonging.
