About this Event
Join us on June 21 in celebrating Make Music Day! Celebrate with guest appearances from local artists: Sniffle Party, Jerrika Mighelle and the UKE Club of Eau Claire, plus a look back at highlights from the past year’s Pablo Streams virtual concert series.

We encourage everyone to not only tune in but tune out and find any excuse to go make music! Share your musical passion and celebration of this day with the hashtag #MakeMusicDay
ABOUT Make Music Day
Make Music Day is an annual celebration that occurs each June 21, when people in more than 1,000 cities around the world make music together on the summer solstice.
In 1982, Jack Lang and the staf of France’s Ministry of Culture created a new kind of musical holiday they called Fête de la Musique, which means both “festival of music” and “make music!” They imagined a day where free, live music would be everywhere: street corners, parks, rooftops, gardens, storefronts, and mountaintops.
Today, Make Music Day has become an international phenomenon, with millions of musicians of all styles, all ages, and all skill levels reimagining their cities as stages, and using music to spread joy to their communities. And Make Music Day is spreading quickly in the United States.
Why join in on the WorldWide Celebration of Make Music Day?
Make Music Day brings joy, inspires creativity, and transforms communities. It celebrates and promotes the natural music maker in all of us, regardless of ability. Make Music Day events turn sidewalks and streets into impromptu stages; let amateur musicians share their passion and gain confdence; and give established artists in all genres a chance to perform for new audiences. Special Make Music Day initiatives, like free instrument lessons and “Mass Appeal” events, invite everyone to join–even if they’ve never picked up an instrument before in their lives.
