Playing Free Park Concerts

since 1923!

2019 Concerts

Cartoon kids play in park and band plays in park


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.
