Glens Falls in Warren County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
City Park’s Development
The Bandstand was first erected as a permanent structure in City Park on March 7, 1928. This early Bandstand, complete with electricity, replaced a small mobile platform that was previously in its place. The original Bandstand was dedicated on Memorial Day in 1928, and the community celebrated its induction as a permanent part of City Park. Nearly 50 years later in 1976, the original Bandstand gave way to its replacement, the Bicentennial Bandstand, which was almost identical in structure. This new Bandstand was paid for by the City of Glens Falls and enjoyed modern upgrades, including a state-of-the-art audio system. In 2009, a second staircase was added to the Bandstand, which allowed activity on the bandstand to be oriented in either direction. Today, City Park's Bandstand is a Glens Falls icon, serving as the cornerstone for many community events, concerts and activities.
