St. Johnsbury Band Celebrates 175th Anniversary
The St. Johnsbury Band celebrates its 175th anniversary in 2005. The Band, founded in 1830,
is the third oldest community band in the nation. It has been in continuous operation since
it was founded.
Our first special concert event of this anniversary year will be our performance at Vermont
History Expo 2005. The Vermont History Expo 2005 is being held at the Tunbridge World's Fair
Grounds in Tunbridge, Vermont. We are scheduled to play at 12:00pm.
Another highlight of this years celebration will be the Band's participation in the first Lake
George Band Festival on Saturday, July 23rd in Lake George, NY. The festival will be held in the
Shepard Park Amphitheatre overlooking the lake. The festival features nine bands from Connecticut,
Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont starting at noon. The St. Johnsbury Band plays at
5:00pm. There will be a combined band performance at 3:00pm with members from all of the
participating bands. The rain location is Lake George High School.
