Amherst BID Band Shell Design Competition

November 2018

"The BID is thrilled to have received 16 designs for a band shell/outdoor performance venue situated on the Town Common. The submitted designs are from a range of professional architecture firms and local architectural students and represent a variety of styles and conceptual ideas. The jury of 7 people, including representatives from the Select Board, Planning Board, Design Review Board, Historical Commission and the BID will deliberate over the course of the month of November. Simultaneously, the 16 design boards will be on display in the Jones Library for the public to view and vote for their favorite for the People’s Choice Award. That winner will not necessarily be the winner chosen by the jury.

All design submittals are anonymous to the jury and public until a winner has been selected. That winner will be announced at a reception on Friday, December 7th at 4:00 pm at Amherst Works.

For more information contact the Business Improvement District (BID) at 413-345-2945 or"
