During the summer, the bandshell is frequently home to a variety of family-friendly free concerts. It features public restrooms, parking for 298 cars and 3,200 seats."


How it all came together .... 

A vision came in to focus early 2018 when the drummer of Damsel, George Wasek, short on gigs with an urge to play out thought it would be a good idea to see who was interested an an outdoor rock show and what better place than Forest Park Band Shell. The feedback was overwhelming from local and national Queens-based bands. This brought us to our kick off show August 25, 2018. The bands did not disappoint and the event exceeded our expectations. Thanks to the parks department, city of Woodhaven and New York City we were invited back for year 2 with a brand new lineup.
