Peter Buys Band Shell

A central feature of City Park, the Band Shell hosts summer concerts by the City Park Lake. The current Band Shell was dedicated in 1960 for Peter Buys, conductor of the Municipal Band from 1920 to 1959. Park benches seat 250, and visitors are welcome to picnic on the open lawn area.

The Hagerstown Municipal Band performs at City Park every Sunday evening June through August. Concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. and are preceded by vesper services. Other performances at the band shell include local gospel singers.

The Band Shell is available for private rental; please visit the Facilities Rental page for more information.
