The Harvard Square Business is gearing up to celebrate the summer solstice with the 7th Annual Make Music Harvard Square / Fête de la Musique.  On June 21st, the streets of Harvard Square become a free, live music festival featuring more than 70 musicians from across the USA playing on 12 different stages.  Festivities kick off at 2pm and come to a close at 10pm.
Make Music Harvard Square is inspired by the “Fête de la Musique” a street-music festival which was started 30 years ago in Paris. The “Fête de la Musique” is now celebrated, under many names, in more than 300 cities in 108 countries, from London to Beijing to Buenos Aires. Harvard Square is proud to be a part of this worldwide celebration! 
A complete schedule of local, regional and national talent follows. Highlights of the day will include a signature main stage in beautiful and historic Winthrop Park.  Make Music Harvard Square is sponsored by Zipcar, Big Skinny, Cirque du Soleil  and Mix 104.1FM
Also on June 21st - Kick off summer with the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture’s annual Summer Solstice celebration from 5-9 p.m. Enjoy a fun evening of telescope viewings, music, making flower crowns and many other hands-on activities for all ages at the Harvard Plaza, with free evening admission to four HMSC museums --the Harvard Museum of Natural History, the Harvard Semitic Museum, Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments, and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology (and even free parking!).
