Veterans Park Bandshell
The bandshell in Veterans Park was built in 2007. It was a project organized by Civic Pride, which was composed of local groups such as Kiwanis, Optimists, and the Ootsburg Historical Society. The bandshell was considered a keystone in the revitalization of the park.
Abacus was the architectural firm who drew up the plans in 2005; construction was in 2006; and the bandshell was completed by 2007. The wood surrounding the stage is made of one-inch strips that have been banded together and bent to the curved shape. Plaques in front and on one side commemorate veterans from the community; plaques on the front and other opposite side have donor's names etched upon them.
The cost of the project was $215,496; funding came from an $18,000 grant from Sheboygan County, $98,748 from the Village and $98,748 from the Civic Pride organization.
Usually a few concerts are held at the bandshell during the summer. In 2021, there are three, June 16, July 15, and August 13 - AUGUSTFEST.
In 2018, they were on June 21 and August 9. In 2020, one was scheduled for June 18, and one was held August 12.
