Make Music Day is an annual worldwide celebration of music that takes place on the longest day of the year, June 21. Starting more than 35 years ago in France, cities imagined a day where musicians and music enthusiasts – of all levels, at any age – fill their city’s neighborhoods and community spaces by playing and enjoying live, outdoor music for free. Celebrated in over 800 cities and 120 countries across the globe, this vision is now being brought to the Town of Cary!
Organized as a volunteer collective, the mission of Make Music Cary is to energize the Cary community by celebrating a shared love for music. We want music to permeate throughout the community and people to pour out into the streets to enjoy it. From bluegrass to hip-hop, Latin jazz to punk rock, singers, MCs, marching bands, glee clubs and any other music persuasions performed by musicians of any age and talent are welcomed. Whether jamming out with co-workers and friends or gathering your family and neighbors together for a fun-filled summer day, Make Music Cary is open to anyone who wants to take part, and enjoyed by everyone who wants to attend!
