Make Music


Check Out 2020’s Recap Video

Make Music Marshfield is an annual one-day citywide, free, outdoor day of music held on the summer solstice, June 21.

2021 is Marshfield’s second year in the international summer solstice music celebration, and we join over 1000 communities around the world in kicking off summer by filling the city with music. This year’s celebration is again a mostly virtual and socially-distanced experience to encourage all people, of all musical abilities, to celebrate the joy of making music. Make Music Marshfield will turn backyards, front porches, and more into a virtual stage, and offer a full spectrum of performers the opportunity to display their musical skills.
