June 21 Annually

Make Music Day

Promoting Music

June 21 is Make Music Day internationally.  We support this fun appreciation day because it incorporates so many aspects of what we support in Cultural Arts:  music (make music), creativity (writing music or making up a tune), artisanship (creating instruments out of everyday household items) and community (sharing your music)

The annual Fall photography contest kicked off in 2021 and will continue as part of our regular programming.  Residents and surrounding community members are encouraged to photograph scenic views in our beautiful town of Oxford and submit them to our contest.  The photo must have been taken in the current year and the subject matter should reflect fall and be located within Oxford.  The contest begins in September and concludes on the final day of November with results shared via our web site and social media the first week of December.  Good Luck fellow shutterbugs!
