Santa Monica Parks To Celebrate Make Music Day This Saturday:

The sound of music will fill Santa Monica’s parks on Summer Solstice, as a coordinated effort to celebrate International Make Music Day will welcome the first official day of summer.

It is the third time Santa Monica is participating in the International Make Music Day, an annual event taking place every Summer Solstice.

Five parks will be hosting free music during the afternoon hours of June 21, which is the longest day of the year and, in 2014, falls on a Saturday.

The five parks hosting Make Music Day in Santa Monica are:

— Colorado Center Park, 26th and Broadway 12: Noon to 8 p.m.

— Palisades Park at Ocean Avenue and Palisades Avenue: 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

— Douglas Park, 2439 Wilshire Boulevard: 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

— Hotchkiss Park, 2302 Fourth Street: 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

— Tongva Park, 1615 Ocean Avenue: Noon to 4 p.m.

— Bergamot Station Arts Center, 2525 Michigan, 3:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Also referred to locally as Make Music Day Santa Monica, the series of events at the five local parks are coordinated and organized by Santa Monica Mid City Neighbors, North of Montana Association, Northeast Neighbors, Ocean Park Association, Recreation & Parks Commissioner Phil Brock, and Santa Monica City staff.

International Music Day was founded in France in 1982, when it launched as the Fete de la Musique. It is considered the world’s largest annual music event, as International Make Music Day is celebrated in more than 800 cities across 110 countries.

Various musicians and musical styles will be on display at free concerts in Santa Monica and other similar events worldwide. It is expected for the musicians to perform for free.

Each of the events in Santa Monica are venues for picnics and spending time with family and friends.
