The Band Shell is an open-air amphitheater with 3,800 permanent seats and a seating capacity of 4,500.
Fair Park Administration also has over 500,000 sq. ft. of outdoor malls, plazas and festival areas for your special event needs. Ask about festival, concert, and sports indoor/outdoor options.
There are over 9,000 parking spaces inside Fair Park and an additional 3,000 paved parking spaces adjacent to the park.
The Fair Park Band Shell (see pictures below) was disassembled and refurbished back to the 1936 glory in 2000. The removal and replacement of plaster on the band shell and pylons, new lighting, painting, roof, doors, lead based paint abatement and historical paint analysis were all part of the project. The wood plank seating at the Fair Park Band Shell was replaced in 2002. Consultant for the project was GSR-Andrade Architects (formally AAE Architects).
