The bandstand of Saint-Mard was inaugurated on 11th September 1885. At that time, it cost the community 2 500 francs, funds that were raised by public subscription. Saint-Mard had several music societies including the Royale Philharmonie which still livens up the youth ball and the Tuesday of the village fete at the end of August, both events taking place on the square surrounding the bandstand.
The bandstand has been erected on the Place Jean-Philippe Lavallé, in the middle of a fenced square planted with large trees. This octagonal bandstand rests on a stone masonry base with eight columns which support the roof with cut-off corners and lambrequin. A metal criss-cross balustrade encloses the platform which used to have a gate. The bandstand and the fence surrounding the site were both listed in 1997. The site was completely renovated in 2013.
