Make Music Old Lyme!
The 2022 Make Music Old Lyme event was a great success!
Make Music Old Lyme will take place June 21, 2023.
Learn more about the 2022 event below and
stay tuned for 2023 details in June!
A great tradition in Old Lyme! Every Summer Solstice (June 21) you will find Lyme Street alive with local residents strolling the street and listening to local musicians. 2022 promises to be another exceptional year for Make Music Old Lyme! A dozen different performances take place along Lyme Street from the First Congregational Church to the Lyme Academy. Enjoy items from the Lions' Club Grille in front of Center School, and then stop by the Chocolate Shell, Nightingale's Acoustic Cafe, and Old Lyme Ice Cream Shoppe for a sweet treat!
Stop along the way to listen to a variety of genres including folk, pop, and Americana, or bring a chair to enjoy your favorite performers from 5pm-7pm!
Libre Baskerville 16
Performing from 4-5pm at LYSB at 59 Lyme Street, Sunny Train is back to entertain our youngest fans! Sunny Train will have little ones (and maybe even the grown ups!) up and dancing and following on. A perfect way to start Make Music Old Lyme by enjoying Sunny Train and, at its conclusion, heading out for street music from 5pm-7pm.
