This year’s Arcadia Festival of Bands will celebrate the 60th consecutive band competition and will present its Diamond Jubilee on Saturday, November 16, 2013. This event is hosted by the bands of Arcadia High School, Dana, First Avenue and Foothills Middle Schools. Forty schools from throughout Southern California will take part in the Band Review and a dozen will also perform in the Field Tournament.
Arcadia Festival of Bands has been sponsored by Arcadia since 1953, and is now the longest running band festival in the state. Hosted by Arcadia High School, it is coordinated by the Arcadia Music Club who provides 400 volunteers throughout the day.
There are three parts to the competition. The first is the Parade Band Review on Baldwin Ave. A percussion competition will follow and is held on the Arcadia High School campus, and lastly, the Field Tournament will be held at the Citrus College stadium in Glendora in the late afternoon.
