GUILFORD — The Henry Whitfield State Museum invites the public to bring blankets and chairs to enjoy an evening of free outdoor music performances for Make Music Day — a free global celebration of music on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, 4-8 p.m., June 21.

This year’s musicians, including Lisa Carlucci & Justin Paglino, Breakwater Light, Skunk Misery Ramblers and Thimble Islands Saxophone Quartet, will be playing on the lawn in front of the 1639 Whitfield House. A variety of refreshments will be available for sale by The Leaner Wiener, Sultan Kebab Mediterranean Food Truck, and Fred’s Ice Cream Truck.

The event will be canceled in the event of rain. Check the museum’s Facebook page for more event details and notices. There is no charge for attending the performances and the Visitor Center. The Whitfield House will be open for self-guided tours — free for children ages 12 and younger, $5 for seniors, and $6 for everyone else.
