Make Music Day 2024

Make Music Day

Make Music Day will be celebrated on June 21 at the Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad. The free event runs from 10 am until 5 pm, with a ticketed performance at 7 pm.

Make Music Day was started in France in 1982 and was known at Fete de la Musique. This special day is now celebrated in more than 1,000 cities in over 120 countries on June 21st each year. The vision of the French founders was a day of music for all to enjoy, whether they make the music or just listen, everywhere in each city.

That vision came true and Make Music Day has spread throughout the word, coming to New York in 2007. According to Wikipedia, there were 4791 free concerts in 117 US cities on Make Music Day in 2023. Who knows what music you’ll find in parks and other public spaces in 2024? You can also just make your own music, and listen to music in the comfort of your home.

Make Music Day is also known as World Music Day and Music Day. And no doubt there are a number of other names around the world.

The celebration at the Museum of Making Music on Make Music Day 2024 will included multiple live performances. There will also be plenty of hands-on opportunities to make music. If you have not visited the Museum of Making Music it’s a real pleasure to experience it in person. I would plan on a pretty good crowd for this special celebration.

Here’s more information about the Make Music Day activities at the Museum this year, with fun for all.
