Gazebo Provides Unique Home for Programming
Since 1979, the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo has provided an open space for programming on the lakefront. It has played host to many Sunday concerts, author visits, children's nature programs, tree walks and has become the subject of many plein air paintings.
 
Year after year, the Gazebo is the backdrop to celebrate life's milestones. Through proposals, weddings, family reunions and baptisms, it fosters a sense of community and love in Lakeside.
 
The centralized location in Central Park allows Lakesiders to stumble upon the Chautauqua experience at the Gazebo and join in with the community. The laid back nature is what makes Lakeside a place unlike any other in today's precisely planed, nonstop world.
We Need Your Support 
Having received only minor updates since its dedication in 1979, the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo is in need of a revitalization. Lend a hand this #GivingTuesday.

What is #GivingTuesday? 

Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday and the kick-off of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday reminds people about the importance of giving by inspiring them to improve their communities and support charities and causes.
 
Taking place on Tuesday, Nov. 28, it harnesses the collective power of nonprofits, families, businesses and individuals to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.
