Event will be free, and will take place rain or shine

Make Music Vermont brings music makers of all ages and experience together on June 21, the first day of summer — a free celebration of music-making that takes place on the same day in more than 120 countries and 1,000 cities across the globe.

Anyone can take part in Make Music Vermont. All musicians are welcome, regardless of whether they are amateurs, professionals, students, or established artists. Make Music VT is open to artists of all ages, genres, and levels of ability. All day long, anyone lucky enough to be in Vermont can join in to make music or enjoy being surrounded by it. It’s the longest day of the year, the best to spend making music!

Come by the bandstand next to the Courthouse in St. Johnsbury from 5pm to 9pm to hear a diverse array of local musicians!  Each artist/band will have a 15 minute slot for their performance. Here’s the current lineup!

  • Students of the EPIC music program, Violin, Viola, and Cello
  • Bobby Farlice, Solo Piano
  • Rake Factory Union, Folk
  • 5th Business, Folk
  • Loud Moon, Folk Pop
  • Victor Tremblay, Folk/Bluegrass
  • Shebang, Percussion/World fusion
  • Autumn Chamberlain, Natural Pop
  • Cece Jones, Acoustic
  • Tom Stamp, Americana
  • Debbie Gray, Folk Pop

Volunteer to make *your* Music for the public at the bandstand! Each artist/band will have a 15 minute slot for their performance, and there will be 5 minutes in between artists for band changeover. Sound equipment will be limited; we’ll be providing use of a simple passport sound system. Slots will be first come, first served. Fill out the form here!

Once our slots are full, we encourage musicians to schedule their own location and register at https://bigheavyworld.com/makemusicvt. Please note: busking permits may be required where you make your music.

Just coming to listen to some great music? Bring your lawn chair or picnic blanket and your appetite, we’ll have food vendors!
