City Park Bandshell
The City Park Band Shell is located in City Park, a downtown park which is in the Park Street Historic District. In the 1960s and 1970s, there was a band shelter present, but it was torn down. There was a revival of musical concerts in the late 1990s, and because of this, the City Parks and Recreation Committee felt there should be a band shell. In 2009, the City council approved the concept. The City purchased the band shell product by Cedar Forest Products from Miller & Associates of Sauk Prairie. The cost was $31,000 and was funded by a Webb Fund donation. City staff built the band shell. The City celebrated its first concert in the new bandshell with a dedication on June 4, 2011.
Free concerts, sponsored by the Reedsburg Area Chamber of Commerce, are offered during the summer. Other uses of the shell are church services, and community events, such as Art Crawl and Hill and Valley Exploration (Sept 2020).
In December 2018, the City celebrated the holiday season with the lighting of the Christmas tree which was placed in the middle of the band shell.
Here are some art creations from the 2016 FermentationFest, located in City Park.
