FESTIVAL OF BANDS - SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15
The Penncrest High School Roaring Lions Marching Band will be hosting its 5th Annual Festival of Bands at the Penncrest High School Stadium on Saturday, October 15, 2022.
Once again, this event gives local high school marching bands an opportunity to exhibit their field shows and to compete in a friendly "Drumline Battle". We anticipate upwards of 10 bands to participate this year.
This fun and music filled event gives band students an opportunity to meet peers from other high schools and perform in a very friendly atmosphere. Our Band members consider the Festival of Bands one of the highlights of the marching band season.

Volunteers make it happen.
The Festival of Bands is organized by the Penncrest BPA's Festival of Bands Committee.
Many volunteers spend more than 6 months organizing all aspects of the event, which make the Festival of Bands a success. The proceeds from the Festival help to support many of the activities for the Band students throughout the year.
On the day of the event, the committee members are supported by many Penncrest Band parent volunteers, whose help is utilized to assist all the students and spectators who attend our festival.
This is an "All Hands on Deck" event!
