Ellensburg Make Music Day

Tuesday, June 21, 2022
All Day

Make Music is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries.

Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.

Make Music Ellensburg is planning for sure to offer:

  • Student performances
  • Ellensburg Strum-Along event (sponsored by the Ellensburg Arts Commission)
  • Drop-in children’s class – at our studio

Register to perform here
