Free Outdoor Park Concerts
The Mankato Area Community Band performs free, outdoor, public concerts in Mankato's Sibley Park on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. Dates are June 11, 18, and 25; July 2, 9, 16 and 23. The band performs all of your favorite upbeat styles at the Leas Schwickert Memorial Bandshell near the petting zoo. Events are great for all ages - infants through grandparents. Bring a blanket or lawn chair. Rain cancels.
The June 25 concert is shared this year with the Mankato 77 Lancers, who will perform on the lawn at 8:00 p.m.
July 2 is our annual patriotic concert in Mankato's Lincoln Park.
The July 23 concert will feature small groups of musicians from the band. Half of the concert will be jazz numbers performed by the Bass Brand Brass Band. Other groups from the band are working up numbers, and there will be a mini-musical comedy: "The Abduction and Eventual Return of Elizabeth the Bassoon".
