About Us

Cartoon kids play in park and band plays in park


2020 Concerts


To provide a consistent series of free, public outdoor concerts. These are events for all ages. We play your favorite styles: marches, concert band favorites, jazz, Big Band, children's, Disney tunes, old and new movie/show tunes. Biggest variety of any band in town! Come bring the entire family out to Sibley! Especially good for families: Children's march weekly with bubbles and other surprises!


This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

​​This project is partially funded by the City of Mankato Community Grant Program.

We rely on donations from the public to support about 25% of our financial needs. Thank you to everyone who gave to the band. No amount is too small to count. We couldn't do it without you. Donations can be sent to Mankato Area Community Band, c/o Martha Lindberg, 100 Cedar St., Apt. 404, Mankato, MN 56001
