Make Music Day Green Bay is part of the international Fête de la Musique, taking place in 800 cities across 120 countries every year on June 21. It is designed to celebrate music in all its forms and encourages people to band together to play free public concerts.
In the U.S., Make Music Day is presented by The NAMM Foundation, and coordinated by the Make Music Alliance. This year, more than 65 U.S. cities are organizing Make Music Day celebrations, encompassing thousands of concerts nationwide.
In 2020 our celebration takes place on Sunday, June 21st which is Father’s Day! Coffee shops, restaurants, front porches, and businesses all over greater Green Bay will fill their locations with song. Brunch patrons may find themselves serenaded by a middle school string quartet. Residents will travel all over the city to see new neighborhoods and enjoy live music.
Make Music GREEN BAY is:
- Performed by Anyone, Enjoyed by Everyone.
- A way for all Green Bay residents to celebrate the summer solstice, enjoying the longest day of the year, while sampling a buffet of musical merriment.
- A DIY city-wide celebration when almost any way to make music can and will happen.
- Make Music Green Bay is open to music makers of all ages, skill levels, and musical persuasions.
