Narberth is celebrating our local musical talents by joining the worldwide Make Music Day on Friday, June 21, 2019, the summer solstice.

MAKE MUSIC NARBERTH is a unique ‘do it yourself’ music festival. Narbs, families and friends are invited to get together and play, sing, listen or clap from 6 to 10 PM on porches, lawns or wherever you wish! Coordinate with neighbors to take turns performing or stroll around the borough and listen to the vibes, acoustic or amplified (but not too loud please!) on other blocks. We’ll be joining people from all over the world, including 80 cities in the US, who get together every year on the summer solstice to make music.

The Narberth Civic Association is sponsoring this community event by creating this social media space for community members to share where live music will be popping up. No formal organizing is involved — Make Music is a grassroots, community-led event! In the discussion space within this event, please POST the location of where you plan to host live music “pop-ups”.
