Presque Isle Bandshell bookings suspended

Due to age and the elements, the Presque Isle Bandshell structure is under review by independent engineering consultants. City of Marquette Parks and Recreation is suspending future bookings at this facility until this engineering analysis is complete. All current bookings through October 2021 will be honored.

More information is expected to become available by January 2022. If the venue is deemed structurally sound, bookings will reopen for the summer 2022 season. An announcement will be issued at that time to outline the reservation process.
