The show will go on! The 2020 Festival of Bands is taking place on Saturday, October 3.
Our organization is committed to providing an educational experience to marching band students in the region. While we work to preserve this opportunity for students to perform, we are also working to ensure the health and safety of all participants and volunteers. As a result — and out of an abundance of caution — this year's event will be modified
🔘 Due to the difficulties of adequate spacing during parade staging and performance for both performers and spectators, we have decided to cancel this year’s parade event.
🔘 To keep the highest standard of environmental safety protocols in place to protect all participants, this year, spectators will not be allowed at Howard Wood Field.
🔘 We are excited to share that a live stream of the event will be made available online for all parents, fans, and Festival of Bands supporters to watch participating bands take the field.
Please know these decisions were not made lightly. With these measures in place, we believe that we can hold a safely orchestrated event, and — most importantly — give marching band students in our region the opportunity to perform.
Event details have been communicated to participating bands and directors.
Supporters and spectators, stay tuned for more details on the event and live stream in the weeks to come!
