Make Music Day is a global celebration of music that takes place each year on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held in more than 700 cities in 120 countries. On June 21st 2016, Make Music Day made its debut in Washington, DC and hosted its third annual celebration in 2018.
Musicians of all genres, skill levels, and ages are urged to share their talents. Virtually any venue can participate. Registration is free, easy and commitment-free.
Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Day is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers.
All events are free and open to the public.
