The Friends of the Golden Gate Park Band was formed in 2006 by a group of enthusiastic fans of live concert band music. The Friends come from a wide array of backgrounds and reside throughout Northern California. Some are active professional and amateur musicians, whiles others are simply enthusiastic fans of music but do not play an instrument.

The Friends are committed to showcasing and introducing live concert bands at the annual two-day Golden Gate Park Band Festival held on the second weekend in June at Spreckels Temple of Music (“The Bandshell”) in Golden Gate Park. The festival is free and open to the public and features community concert bands from throughout Northern California, as well as the Golden Gate Park Band.

What SF Parks Alliance Loves

The Friends of the Golden Gate Park Band host an annual two-day festival in June at the Spreckels Temple of Music in Golden Gate Park, where they bring in bands from across the Bay Area. The event has a unique and special small town feel, and we admire how the Friends host the event out of pure love for music!
