Free, all-ages, public music-making for everyone!
Make Music Day is a free celebration of music around the world that is always held on Summer Solstice – the longest day of the year, June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day is now an annual event in more than 750 cities in 120 countries. Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Day is open to anyone who wants to take part. All of it is free and participatory for everyone of all ages, with live performances of all genres. This event is a collaboration of local businesses, nonprofits, and Make Music Seattle–a local non-profit organization that was created in 2015 to celebrate music in Seattle, the City of Music.
