Municipal Band

The Le Mars Municipal Band has one of the strongest traditions of all the community bands in the state of Iowa, having been performing public concerts for over 100 years.


The band is made up of professional and amateur musicians from the city of Le Mars and surrounding communities.


The band presents summer concerts during June and July at 7:30pm at historical Foster Park. The concerts are free to the public courtesy of the City of Le Mars and friends and supporters of the band.  Concert-goers are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs or blankets.


If you would like to make a financial contribution to the band or are interested in sponsoring a concert, please email a member of the Le Mars Municipal Band Board of Directors.
