Montclair Music Day Celebrates the Arts June 21

Montclair Music Days

Montclair will once again celebrate the first day of summer and the arts with Music Day. Mark your calendar for Friday, June 21, and head out for a day filled with music!

Make Music Day originated from the French Fête de la Musique 32 years ago. The festival, which celebrates music, quickly became popular around the world. The first Montclair Celebration was held in 2014 and has grown into a massive celebration with new venues, performers and participants every year. This goes to show how much our community loves music and art!

The Montclair Independent Arts Center is the official venue for this annual event. It is connected to a global network of towns and cities organizing events on June 21st.

Also noteworthy this year, the Montclair Town Council issued a proclamation on June 11 officially recognizing Music Day.

This year’s event will feature over 30 performers performing at various venues across the region:
