Make Music Edmonton 2017
June 21st from 5-9pm
The Fête de la Musique Festival originated in Paris in 1982, as a way of bringing the people to the streets in celebration of the summer solstice. The idea began as an all-day celebration of “the music everywhere, and the concert nowhere”. A way for all walks of life to come together to celebrate music, and a chance for all types of musicians to play in the streets.
Fête de la Musique translates to “Make Music”, and the Make Music Edmonton Festival was brought to our great city in 2014 thanks to the efforts of the community at the Alliance Français d’Edmonton.
The Make Music Festival is now celebrated in over 120 countries across the globe. We at parcel + prose are happy and proud to be hosting five talented musicians on 124th Street, and participate in the celebration of music that will bring the street alive. With two mainstages bookending the festival at Jasper Avenue and 108th Ave., and several stops at participating vendors along the street, this will most definitely be an event worth checking out!
Make Music Edmonton runs Wednesday, June 21st from 5-9pm on 124th Street. Be sure not to miss it. “The music everywhere, the concert nowhere”
