The Bandstand

Bandstand Rental 

Our policy for the usage of the bandstand is that if you wish to reserve it, the cost will be $250.  The reservation would confirm that you would have the exclusive use of the bandstand and the electricity (if you should need it). The funds for the rental of the bandstand are strictly for the maintenance and upkeep of the bandstand. If you have over 100 people at your event, you must contact the City of Manchester to acquire the appropriate permit.

PLEASE READ the TERMS & CONDITIONS before applying for the bandstand rental. The calendar below shows booked events, but may not show some in the final agreement/planning stages. Your date and time is not confirmed until you hear back from us and we have received payment.

If you have any questions, please email us at
