Make Music Downtown Statesville is a live, free musical celebration on June 21, the longest day of the year, with concerts on streets, sidewalks, and parks across Downtown.

About

Downtown Statesville Development Corporation and The Iredell Arts Council are excited to bring Make Music Day Downtown Statesville to you for the first time! We are joining over 1,000 cities in 120 countries around the world to be a part of the biggest music celebration ever!

Get ready to join us for a unique musical extravaganza in Downtown Statesville! Unlike traditional music festivals, where only a select few take the stage, we’re inviting everyone—regardless of age or skill level—to be a part of the music-making experience.

On June 21st, we’re transforming Downtown Statesville into a vibrant hub of musical expression. From classical to rap, percussion to piano, and everything in between, we’re celebrating the diverse sounds that make our community unique.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Open Jam Sessions: Bring your instrument and jam with fellow musicians. No auditions, no restrictions—just pure musical collaboration.
  • Performance Opportunities: Whether you’re a seasoned performer or a newcomer, we welcome you to showcase your talent on our various indoor and outdoor stages.
  • Music Classes: From beginner workshops for children to advanced sessions for songwriters and musicians, there’s something for everyone to learn and explore.
  • Community Engagement: We’re spreading the joy of music to every corner of Downtown Statesville, creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all.

So, grab your instrument, gather your friends, and mark your calendars for June 21st. Let’s come together to make music and create unforgettable memories in the heart of our city.
