If you are coming to cheer on our awesome band groups, make sure you arrive early to allow for parking, walking, and finding a seat. You aren't allowed to enter the seating area when a group is performing, so you'll need to arrive well before performance time.


Tickets were distributed to most students last week. If your student did not pick up tickets, please remind them the importance of everyone doing their part. Tickets are available from Mr. Pace.


  • Students and parents are needed to work one hour shifts at the event, everything from filling drinks to selling raffle tickets. Choose a spot that works best for you.

  • Everyone should share the information with everyone, talk it up at work, share the event on social media, etc.

  • Buy your tickets and plan to attend!
