The St. Johnsbury Band calendar for 2017 is shown below. All rehearsals and scheduled performances are listed. The Band rehearses in the community room of the Caledonia Courthouse on Monday evenings at 7:00pm (6:30pm during the summer concert season). The entrance is off the parking lot on the east side of the courthouse (not the Sheriff's office entrance). Take the elevator to the second floor and enter the community room.

Our traditional Monday evening concerts are performed in the bandstand just outside of the courthouse in the park. These concerts are at 7:30pm and start in June and continue into August.

Band Members: In the event that a Monday evening concert is cancelled due to inclement weather, the Band will rehearse from 6:30pm - 8:30pm.

If you would like to schedule us for your event, please contact us by email at Manager@stjohnsburyband.org or write to us at the address on the Contact Us page.
