Make Music
Wyoming County


Make Music Day will take place on June 21, the longest day of sunlight all year. It’s a worldwide event to celebrate music. This year, the Arts Council for Wyoming County is celebrating art and music “close to home” and through Make Music Day Wyoming County, we are hoping to bring music as close as we can to people throughout the area – in businesses and offices and parks. 

Wyoming County is a rural county in the heart of Western New York. A county with sixteen towns, and we are also home to Letchworth State Park. We’re located about an hour from both downtown Buffalo and Rochester and around an hour and a half from Corning. We invite you to see what’s playing on Make Music Day Wyoming County. 

If you are interested in participating as a musician or a venue, please look at the information below. 

We are excited to Make Music part of your Day on June 21.
