The 30-member Norway City Band, formed in 1882, is the oldest band in the State of Michigan to perform on a consecutive yearly basis. The Band Shell, located alongside City Hall at 915 Main Street, is where the City Band plays regularly from June to August every year. The band shell hosts many other musicians, too. 'Music in the Park' is played here each summer, lining up a different artist or group just about every week. View this summer's Music in the Park schedule. The band shell is also played in during the annual Leif Erikson Fall Festival. (Leif Erikson weekend is one of Norway's biggest and best events; interested in helping us pull it off?) The mural inside the shell depicts a Viking ship braving stormy waters. Installed bench seating can accommodate about 60.
