Make Music Day Annual Celebration

Arts Alliance of Stratford is proud to be the Stratford sponsor for this annual global music event.

Make Music Day is a free celebration of music around the world each year on June 21st.


Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day has gone global and is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries.

Unlike a typical music festival, it is open to all musicians — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion. And, the event is free and open to the public.

Last year, over 800 cities around the world had citywide music celebrations on June 21st.

Thanks to our Music Director, Colin Healy, a musician himself, has led this event for us since 2017.

Each year there are musical acts, food trucks, artisans, and events for kids.

In 2021 we had more than 450 guests attend the event which was held at Shakespeare Park.

If you’d like to see the lineup and more specifics, please visit the event page.

We’d like to thank these sponsors who helped make it possible.
