The second Annual Fete de la Musique is set for June 20 in St. Martin Parish.

It's open to all musicians, who are asked to perform at some time between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. that day on their front porches, yards, local restaurants or dance halls - with proper social distancing.

Organizers are asking participants to post videos on Facebook, and tag Fete de la Musique Louisiane.

St. Martin Parish is the first parish in Louisiana to celebrate Fête de la Musique, organizers.

They encourage every musician (any genre) 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.

Fête 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, Fête de la Musique crossed the Atlantic with the debut of Make Music New York. Fête de la Musique is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries.
