What is Make Music Fairfield?
Make Music Fairfield is an event for people who love music and the joyous sense of community that music can foster. It will be held at numerous locations in Fairfield every June 21 (the summer solstice). The next Make Music Fairfield celebration is on Sunday, June 21 2020
Make Music Fairfield is a call to participation: Music by the People, For the People.
It is an invitation to all musicians, amateur and professional, to perform on June 21. It is also an invitation to music-lovers to show up at the venues and enjoy all musical offerings, all day long.
Make Music Fairfield is a celebration of music of all genres played by and enjoyed by people of all stripes. From alternative to bluegrass to Classical and Zydeco, Fairfield wants to see it all! We will be joining over 725 cities around the world to celebrate Make Music Day – so help us make this day unforgettable as we kick off summer with music for all to enjoy!
Make Music Day Fairfield is an outgrowth of the Fete de la Musique, which originated in France in 1982. The event began as a call to musicians in Paris to get out in the streets on June 21 and play their music. It has since spread and has a large footprint, particularly in Europe and parts of Africa, but also in a handful of cities getting started in the U.S.
Thank you to the Connecticut State Office of the Arts for supporting this event!
