Fete de la Musique, St. Martin Parish

Fete de la Musique is modeled after a Parisian tradition that began in 1982 as a tribute to the Summer Solstice. More specifically, each June 21st Paris is filled with musicians of all kinds performing on sidewalks, lawns, balconies, in parks, etc. for anyone to enjoy at no cost. In 2007, FĂȘte de la Musique crossed the Atlantic with the debut of Make Music New York. FĂȘte de la Musique is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries. St. Martin Parish is the first event in Louisiana to celebrate Fete de la Musique! We encourage every musician to celebrate on their front porch, front yard, local restaurant and dance hall to be a part of World Music Day. Any restaurant, dance hall, local business or individuals located in St. Martin Parish are encouraged to host music jams at their location. Contact or call 337-298-3556 to have your event listed here.
