A wonderful band with the same director for 50, yes 50 years. They have around 100 members and present a free outdoor concert on Thursday nights during the summer. The music is fantastic and the venue is wonderful. Close to downtown. Bench seating is available or you can bring your own and use the grass

Summer would not be complete without a night out in Central Park listening to guest soloists and the Municipal Band. Add the charm of an ice cream social and you might feel like you are back in a small town. We love it for birthday celebrations and a local picnic. Arrive early or parking can be tough.

Every Thursday evening during the summer in Central Park, people have the special opportunity to listen to the Naperville Municipal Band. This talented Band is composed of some really outstanding musicians, who love playing a variety of music for a discerning and very appreciative audience. The musical selections vary from week to week, and might include traditional marches, popular theatre,... More

Our grandkids ASK to come to these concerts. We have a picnic dinner and get dessert from the gazebo. A grand time is had by all!

Municipal Band is a Naperville tradition. I especially enjoy the Big Band ( July 9th & August 20th this year ) - but it is always fun. Folks with little kids tend to leave early. There is pie and cookies at the Gazebo. Bring a picnic from home or nearby ( Q's bbq, Chipotle, Potbelly are all nearby - Jewel... More

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.
