Band Day Competition Guidelines

Band Day Application

  • Registration deadline is Wednesday, September 6, 2017.
  • Color guards, twirlers, drum lines & drum majors have separate awards but will compete with their bands during the parade competition. 

Free Workshops

All musicians, color guard, drum line teams and aspiring twirlers will want to make their way to the Bandshell Lawn by 1 p.m. to participate in this year's FREE workshops:

  • Enid Twirling Academy will host the Learn 2 Twirl workshop! Batons will be provided for workshop use only.
  • Southwestern Oklahoma State University will host both the color guard and drum line workshops. Their color guard team and drum line will teach some new techniques to move students toward a higher level of achievement.

Volunteers Needed

Band Day runs successfully each year because volunteers donate their time and energy to make sure Oklahoma schools can participate in a quality event. We are in need of a parade competition coordinator as well as more competition volunteers.
