The event has been in Highlander Stadium for several years now. It features fifteen local bands, including performances from Glenvar, Salem High School, Parry McCluer and Hidden Valley High School.

“It’s a huge variety of music,” says Glenvar Band Director, Zac Sweeney. “There are all kinds of different shows. There are schools like us, who do pop-oriented shows with music like you hear on the radio. There are lots of schools that do really intricate, great storytelling-type shows, we’ll see a lot of those as well.”

The competition kicks off at 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for kids.
