Make Music
Iowa Corridor


Make Music Day Iowa Corridor is an annual free, outdoor day of music held on the summer solstice, June 21.  

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 of it is free and open to the public.

Make Music Cedar Rapids began in 2015, sponsored by Legion Arts, incorporated a full day of activities, beginning with a sunrise concert involving a Native American flute player and a chanter from the Eastern Orthodox Church, and ending with a campfire singalong, complete with marshmallows. In 2017 the event expanded to include five cities in Iowa’s Creative Corridor: Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty, Cedar Rapids and Marion.

Make Music Day 2018  Iowa Corridor is sponsored by West Music. 

2018 Listings: Thursday, June 21st
