About the event

https://www.makemusicday.org

It all started 41 years ago in France.

In 1982, Jack Lang and his staff at the Ministry of Culture dreamed up an idea for a new kind of musical holiday. They imagined a day where free music would be everywhere, all around each city: street corners, parks, rooftops, gardens, and store fronts.

And, unlike a typical music festival, anyone and everyone would be invited to join and play music, or host performances. The event would take place on the summer solstice, June 21, and would be called Fête De La Musique. (In French, the name means both “festival of music” and “make music”.)

Amazingly enough, this dream has come true. The Fête has turned into a true national holiday: the country shuts down on the summer solstice and musicians take over. Almost 11% of French people (7 million people) have played an instrument or sung in public for the Fête de la Musique, and 64% of the country (43 million people) comes out each year to listen.

Four decades later, the holiday has spread throughout the world and is now celebrated in more than 1,000 cities in 120 different countries.

Tickets

  • RSVP

    This is a FREE event. No tickets needed. No reservations. RSVP (optional) allows you to receive notifications of any changes to this event (and lets us know how many people are interested), BUT RSVP DOES NOT save you a "seat," (seating is first come, first served). So come early for food and beer or wine and grab a good seat inside or on our outdoor patio!
