Make Music


Thank you to our Sponsors!

Thank you for your interest in supporting Make Music Day Salem!

Make Music Day is a free, one-day event featuring live music performances, opportunities to make music and other musical activities that take place around the world on June 21, the longest day of the year. Musical festivities in Salem are part of the global celebration of music making in over 700 cities inspired by France’s Fête de la Musique.

Make Music Day Salem is a volunteer-based, community nonprofit project started in February 2016 by a handful of volunteers and sponsoring organizations. In just two years we had over 200 bands and artists play at 60 different host venues for more than 325 performances with an estimated

audience of over 10,000 attendees during the day into evening celebration. The energy and financial support of the business community, coupled with the talents and interest of the vibrant music and arts community made Make Music Day Salem a success on many levels.

We want to make this year’s event even bigger. To help offset some of the necessary costs, such as city permits, licenses, insurance, software, professional sound experts, event-related rentals, power generators, staging, performance equipment, promotional materials and outreach activities that comes with putting on an event throughout the city such as this, we need your support.
