Make Music McMinnville is a musical celebration creating community events that are open to anyone; players, singers, listeners, beginners looking to be inspired, people who are willing to share their inspiration with the world.  Every place, performer, and person of every stripe has a part to play in Make Music McMinnville.

While it is an international event, the communities involved have a localized focus, with music-related activities taking place in multiple locations in the community. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day it is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries.

Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music McMinnville is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers.

The ultimate goal is celebrating our community through music, in a way that is accessible to musicians and non-musicians alike. All of it is free and open to the public.
