The 37th Annual Blissfest Festival is on its way! The Blissfest Music Organization invites artists to submit designs to be considered for the
37th annual Blissfest Music Festival logo.

 Logo Contest is closed for the year 2107. 


Submissions must be original artwork and of a size easily scalable for a variety of uses including T-shirts and posters. All formats are acceptable, however, if you can digital artwork is easier for us to make into a logo. The word “Blissfest” must be prominent in the design as well as the year “2017” and/or “37th Annual”. We are looking for designs that are distinctive and imaginative that project the Blissfest theme. The design can include imagery of instruments, musicians and dancers as well as the essence of an outdoor music camp out. Keep in mind that the Blissfest features folk music as well as innovative acoustic and roots music with a mission of cultural enrichment, heritage and diversity.
