MAKE MUSIC DAY will be happening on June 21st, and we need you to be a part of it!

MAKE MUSIC DAY Waupaca is a collaboration between the Arts and Culture Network, the City of Waupaca, and Waupaca’s local businesses. The goal of MAKE MUSIC DAY is to celebrate music encouraging everyone, regardless of expertise, participating in the fun of making and sharing music.

Although the Waupaca Area Arts and Culture Network originally planned for MAKE MUSIC DAY to take place in downtown Waupaca, we are moving the performance space online. Along with many hands-on events, there will be an OPEN MIC. This is where YOU come in.

We invite you to create your own music video. It will be fun and easy. Here are few tips:

  • Choose a song or songs that you love and want to share
  • It can be solo, in a group, sung, played on an instrument, any genre, humorous or serious; the sky is the limit!
  • You will NOT be judged!
  • Your video can be up to 3 minutes in length (You can send up to 3 videos!)
  • The easiest way to create your video is to use your smart phone
  •  Please hold your phone in landscape orientation

Submitting your video is easy.  Send your smart phone video to the following email address:

If you have any questions on how to submit your video, please send your question to this email address as well.

The deadline for submission is June 5th.

Your videos will be broadcast on June 21st MAKE MUSIC DAY between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. on select local business and organization Facebook pages. There will be a schedule published at the MAKE MUSIC DAY WAUPACA Facebook page and on the MAKE MUSIC DAY website
