Organization: Great Parks of Hamilton County

About this event:

Great Parks will join an international chorus celebrating the summer solstice with its first ever participation in the global Make Music Day, which will take place on Tuesday, June 21, in over 1,000 locations worldwide. By turning parks and outdoor spaces in Greater Cincinnati and Hamilton County into one big music stage, our community joins hundreds of millions of people who will make music together on the longest day of the year.

Make Music Day is a free worldwide day of music held annually on the summer solstice. After the first festival in France in 1981, it eventually reached over 120 countries, including the U.S. in 2007.

Last year’s Make Music Day program in Greater Cincinnati included over 90 performances around the city, and with Great Parks joining the celebration, the aim is to include even more performers for 2022.

Musicians can come from any skill level and every genre, from glee clubs to garage bands, and from jazz combos to mariachis.

The Great Parks Make Music Day lineup includes the following acts, all performing on June 21.
