June 21: Make Music Day (la fête de la musique) [fr]

Celebrate Music in Southwest United Sates and find the closest event from your home!


Celebrating music on June 21st started in France. Today, the whole world celebrates what is now known as World Music Day.

Since 1982, France became for a day a place for free concerts, organized or unannounced, in parks, public space, theaters or any street..

The event has gradually become established outside of the country, thanks to French Embassies, Consulates and cultural organizations as well as their partners.

Celebrated in over a hundred countries and thousands of cities, Make Music Day is now an international movement, which we invite you to participate in the Southwest of the United States.
