Who is FORPBS?
Friends of Rec Park Bandshell
FORPBS is a 501.c.3 non-profit run by volunteers that want to support live music in East Long Beach - fiscally sponsored by Partners of Parks
FORPBS has the following goals
Bring back the regular use of the historic landmark Bandshell.
Focus on local talent and the involvement of our community’s youth.
Raise funds over time through business and private donations for full renovation of the Bandshell.
Create a lasting foundation that will promote the use and maintenance of the Bandshell for years to come.
Since 1929, the Bandshell at Recreation Park in Long Beach has had a long history of hosting events from theatre to bands to high school graduations.
In recent years this registered Historic Landmark has been underutilized and fallen into some disrepair.
In coordination with and support from Partners of Parks we have created a new non-profit organization, Friends of Recreation Park Bandshell (FORPBS).
