Every summer, Lake Harriet hosts a number of concerts in its beautiful castle shaped Bandshell. This bandshell stood on the edge of the lake campus till 1891 before it was destroyed completely in a pathetic fire tragedy. The next bandshell came up and was called the ‘pagoda pavilion’ but this also unfortunately got burnt down in a fire tragedy. The next one again got destroyed in a windstorrm in 1925 and the 4th one remained till 1985. After this the blue one was erected that we see till now. The path covered with the red leaves from the trees here make it look like a picture of loneliness but the peace and serenity you can get here is simply unmatched.

Lake Harriet Bandshell Reviews & Ratings

  • This is a great place to visit at Lake Harriet. Evident based on the number of "photographers" capturing its beauty for many different occasions. I went here for the "fall hoop jam" and we even attracted others to stay and watch! A must see view if you happen to be in town! Do not forget to pay for parking! You will be ticketed! Also, be sure to visit the other lakes within this extensive park system! -Alexander2019

  • Fantastic place to go with loved ones. I had no problem finding free parking! There were plenty of available grills with tables despite it being fairly busy. Every Friday this don't there will be a movie shown on the screen they have set up!

  • Great place to spend an afternoon on a beautiful day. Take a break from biking to listen to some lively music and have a snack from the age. Cheese curds are delish and the hummus wrap was fresh and flavorful. Beer too!

  • This is a nice spot for any casual, short family leisure. Bike and walking paths are very pleasant for a stroll or exercise. Rented bikes have been convenient for me. Just make sure to pick up your trash.

  • Lake Harriet is a Beautiful Park. A family gathering, a romantic getaway, a day alone, a 1500 runner Marathon, a family or personal picnic, a movie, a musical, a play or whatever you desire is ready for you. Great Boating and Fishing too. You will LOVE it
