Thank you to everyone who participated in Music MAYnia 2023!

See you again next year!

When is Music MAYnia?
Music MAYnia is traditionally held the first Sunday in May. This year it is May 7, 2023, 1:00–5:00 PM, rain or shine.

What is Music MAYnia?
Music MAYnia is an annual music performathon and community festival. Held on the first Sunday in May, Music MAYnia is free and open to the public and features live music, games & activities, food trucks, and more. Student performers of all ages and abilities perform live continuous music (ranging from classical to rock) on four stages. It's a popular music festival that many community members attend—and look forward to—every year.

Hang loose with us and enjoy this year's Groovy '60s Music MAYnia!

OK, so Music MAYnia sounds like an outta sight event, how do I participate?

For Students:

  • The performer schedule is here! Please check for your performance time(s) and location(s). Thank you to everyone who signed up! 
  • You'll be receiving a special edition TIE-DYE t-shirt! The day has finally come—we've wanted to do tie-dye for years. What better time than when we're celebrating the 1960s? T-shirts will be available for pick up a few days before the event at the front office, or at the check-in tent on the day of MAYnia. Please wear your t-shirt at MAYnia! (If you pick up your t-shirt ahead of time, you do not need to stop at the check-in tent.)
  • There will be satellite parking—it's no sweat to ride the Magic Bus, with live music! See more info below.

For Volunteers:

  • Please join us as a volunteer, we promise it will be far out! We rely on dozens of generous people each year who do everything from setting up chairs to decorating tents to welcoming visitors. As a volunteer, you'll be at the center of this fun-filled community event—plus we'll provide free snacks and lunch.
