Make Music Hartford wouldn’t be possible without venues to host musicians. Venues can be in front of stores and restaurants, front porches, parks, schools, and more. Venues must be located outside and accessible to the general public without an entry fee. Register to be a venue, browse musician profiles and request a performer you’d like at your location.

Not a musician, but interested in getting involved? We’re looking for volunteers to help us document the day and showcase our community’s vibrancy.

Volunteer photographers, videographers, event helpers, bloggers and social media enthusiasts are needed to attend concerts throughout the community and help capture all of the amazing energy Make Music Day will bring. Could be done on lunch breaks or after work! Contact Joe Cole at the Arts Council for details.
