Make Music


Make Music Platteville is an annual one-day citywide, free, outdoor day of music held on the summer solstice, June 21. This year marks Platteville’s sixth year in the international summer solstice music celebration, we join over 1000 communities around the world in kicking off summer by filling the city with music. Make Music Platteville will turn backyards, front porches and even showers into a virtual stage, and offer a full spectrum of performers the opportunity to display their musical skills.

2021 provides us with the possibility of operating under quarantine.  Check our “Participate” page for ideas in the event we are unable to gather. (Quarantine Plan B)
