Make Music Downey 2014 is coming Saturday, June 14th, 2014!

Make Music Downey is a free, all day, all-ages, music celebration taking place in Downtown Downey, Saturday, June 14th, from 11 AM to 6 PM.  Festival seating is open to all at the Main Stage in front of City Hall, and other venues are within easy walking distance.

The music will begin right after the Tour de Downey bike ride.  Cheer the riders as they cross the finish line at the Downey Civic Center, then stay to enjoy the vibe of Making Music 

The festival of sound will feature over 60 bands spanning 6 venues. Internationally known bands perform at the Main Stage next to an interactive vendor village featuring over 40 unique artists, crafts, and community partners. 

Once again Downey is joining hundreds of other cities in this annual celebration of music.  First organized in Paris in 1982 as Fete de la Musique, these one-day music festivals, usually at the time of the Summer Solstice, have grown in international popularity.

We celebrate all genres of music, from rock bands to chamber groups, Mariachi music and jazz, country music and new age, Hawaiian melodies and hip-hop.

Whatever your musical tastes, come celebrate with us on June 14!
