Make Music Day happens on  the summer solstice every year, June 21st. This year, the event falls on a Sunday. We can’t wait to see what creative ways musicians and venues execute performances this year!

2020 is the third year that Northwest CT is participating. As situations develop with COVID-19, venues and musicians should use their discretion when signing up to participate, and get creative to host safe and socially distant performances. Venues are strongly encouraged to register as soon as possible, and start promoting their participation in this event.
