It was funded at a cost of $100,488 by the City of Jefferson, Jefferson Rotary Club which contributed $80,000), and other private donations, including the Van Eske Band (Dale Opperman, current mayor, was a member of the band).
The Jefferson Live Music Foundation manages the free summer concerts; the City of Jefferson programs movies and other activities as well as overseeing the rental of the bandshell. Other special events at the park that use the bandshell include Goat Fest, Tomorrow's Hope, and Gemuetlichkeit Days. Summer 2020 concerts were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
