What is Make Music Ridgefield?
Make Music Day Ridgefield is an outgrowth of the Fete de la Musique, which originated in France in 1982. Make Music Day is an event for people who love music and the joyous sense of community that music can foster. The event began as a call to musicians in Paris to get out in the streets on June 21 and play their music. It has since spread and has a large footprint, particularly in Europe and parts of Africa, and in the US, Make Music Day began in 2014.
Last year, 104 U.S. cities organized 3,819 free concerts. Ridgefield featured 13 venues, 49 performances with 130+ musicians. We believe this is a great way to showcase our town and the many talented and amazing people that make Ridgefield special.
Make Music Ridgefield is brought to you by the Ridgefield Arts Council as part of our mission to generate attention for Ridgefield’s vibrant arts community. We hope to inform, entertain and inspire those who appreciate and create art in all its genres.
