The Harrisburg Moose Band was a concert band that played in Central Pennsylvania from the late 1910s to the 1980s. The band played in Hersheypark for the first time in 1941, and then most years after World War II until 1971. The band performed at the park’s Bandshell, which was part of the free entertainment in the park. Harrisburg Moose Band played two shows per contract – a show at 2pm and a show at 7pm.
Harrisburg Moose Band performed at the Hersheypark Bandshell, on Sunday, August 7, 1960.
The band did not have a traditional weekend to play in Hersheypark. From one year to the next, they played in either June, July, or August.
