What is Make Music Day Danbury?

Make Music Day Danbury is a part of the international Make Music Day movement which brings free, community-wide, outdoor musical celebrations to hundreds of cities worldwide! Every year, the celebration is held on June 21st, the summer solstice, in more than 1000 communities around the world.

Make Music Day Danbury will feature musicians of all abilities and music from any genre. Sidewalks, parks, front porches, and public spaces throughout the city will become stages for local musicians to perform and for all to enjoy. Everyone is invited to participate in this international day of music by performing, providing an outdoor space, appreciating, or volunteering.

It’s all for the love of music!

Frequently Asked Questions

Feel free to send more john @

Why a Wednesday? 

Make Music Day is a global event on June 21st of every year, this year it’s a Wednesday! As it gets bigger and bigger Thurs, Fri and Saturdays will definitely be awesome!

Do you get paid?

No, although you can feel free to request tips from the audience Make Music Day is a free event for everyone. It’s a chance to celebrate music as a whole and show the city what talent is out there.

What will the locations provide for music makers? 

Those with power will essentially have an extension cord but besides that it’s pretty open. Locations can have as much or as little engagement as they want although their participation is highly encouraged.

What if it rains?

That would be a shame. Most likely we’d have to cancel most of the day but may be able to salvage a few locations.

Who can get involved?

Literally anyone. If you ever wanted to perform in public now is your chance.
