Newly Renovated Bandshell Ready for its Debut
In partnership with the San Francisco Parks Alliance and Illuminate, and thanks to generous philanthropic support, we have completed renovations of the 120-year-old Spreckels Temple of Music bandshell. Originally slated to be a centerpiece of Golden Gate Park’s 150th anniversary celebration in April, the opening was delayed due to COVID. However, the new stage, with built-in theatrical lighting and sound systems, is now complete.
Starting today, October 21–coinciding with the opening of the 150-foot tall Observation Wheel–the construction fence will come down and the bandshell lights will begin to shine nightly from sunset to park closing.
We look forward to more fully celebrating with community performances on the stage, once health regulations allow.
