Make Music


Make Music Hartford returns on June 21, 2022!

Make Music Day was founded on the notion that music has the power to bring people together. In times joy and hardship, both active and passive participation in music is healing and celebratory. Let’s take the opportunity to come together as a community and make music on June 21st.

We want to get out and play just as much as you do! Check back for updates on Make Music Hartford events through the spring of 2022.

You can follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see what we share!

Note: your venue will not show on the map if you do not have a confirmed performance. So, even if it is an open jam session on your front lawn, please enter that as a performance to help others find you.

Important Notice About Permits:

The Greater Hartford Arts Council will work with the City of Hartford to secure necessary permits for Make Music Hartford performers. Permits are required for any musician using city owned, public property such as sidewalks and city parks. Performances on private property do not require the same permits, but must abide by noise ordinances already in place. The Arts Council will assist with securing permits for performances confirmed in the registration system by June 14, 2022.

If a musical event happens in one of the Greater Hartford suburbs, it is up to the venue and musician to secure appropriate permits for that specific town or city.
