The 2020 Golden Gate Park Band Festival

Festival Canceled

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the need to maintain social distancing, we regret to inform you that the 2020 Golden Gate Park Band Festival has been canceled. While we will miss seeing you in the park this year, we believe this was the right decision for the health and safety of all involved.

The good news is that all the bands that signed on for the 2020 festival have already agreed to participate in the 2021 Golden Gate Park Band Festival. We have an exciting and diverse group of community bands from throughout Northern California ready to entertain you next year!

The 2021 Golden Gate Park Band Festival

The 2021 Golden Gate Park Band Festival will be held on June 12 and 13, 2021 at the Spreckels Temple of Music in Golden Gate Park.
