Fort Mason asks “Since when does Fort Mason Center have an outdoor performance space?” The outdoor Bandshell — created from salvaged car hoods, recycled circuit boards, and reclaimed wood — is located on central campus. The Bandshell hosts improv, musical and circus performances, readings and meetings, lunch space, and impromptu public performances. If you are interested in reserving a time in the Bandshell: contact here: contact (at) fortmason.org

The Bandshell, previously known as the Panhandle Bandshell was part of the [BRAF]’s Civic Arts Program, and the PARKcycle was a recipient of a grant through the Black Rock Arts Foundation’s Grants-to-Artists program.  We are proud to have supported this public art that is continuing to promote art, community and civic participation.
