This is my summer time must. There is nothing like a nice evening in the park listening to the band. You must listen to 1812 overture around the 4th of July with real cannons.

If you are in the Naperville area in the summer, by all means attend one of the Band concerts! They are wonderful, thoroughly enjoyable and FREE of charge. The Naperville Municipal band has been playing since 1859 and going strong. They play on Thursday nights at 7:30pm at the Centennial Park in the summer. The concert schedule this year is... More

The Thursday night concerts in the park by the Naperville Municipal Band are great. You can sit on benches, bring blankets, bring a picnic, buy at the concession stand which supports local organizations. The music is wonderful. It's such a fun and different thing to do in town. You can bring the family, go on a date. Definitely worth it.

The band plays year round. You can see it in the parades and at the band shell. They pay every week in the summer months, under the stars. A different organization sponsers an ice cream social during the concerts. In the winter specal concerts are played at various locations throughout the city. Their sound is amazing. Highly recommended!

Excellent music. We have been several years in a row right around the 4th of July. The band always plays nice patriotic music. We couple the concert with a early dinner for nice evening outdoors.

My wife and I used to live in Naperville and attended many of Naperville's outdoor concerts, many of which included the Naperville Municipal Band. My wife and I still get to Naperville on a regular basis to listen to some of their concerts and to take a nice walk along the river. In the summer the municipal band plays in... More

Free concerts throughout the year. In the summer the municipal band plays in picturesque Central Park in downtown Naperville. Go to their website www.Napervilleband.org for each concerts theme. Director Ron Keller and M. C. Ann Lord are the heart beat of the band. You must show up early so as not to miss the opening song and raising of the... More

Don't miss the Thursday evening concerts during the summer with an ice cream social. You can bring your own blanket and chair or sit on a park bench. The music is great and changes each week.
