2017 Festival of Bands
Twenty-seven marching bands from the Northwest, including bands from Sheldon and Willamette high schools, will compete at Autzen Stadium on Nov. 4 in an all-day competition running run from 9:00 a.m. to 10 p.m. The event will also feature two performances by the Oregon Marching Band. Tickets are available at the South gate the day of the event for $15 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors and $35 for a family 4-pack.

This family-friendly event, now in its 35th year after a year hiatus, will allow patrons to enjoy “the good seats” at Autzen Stadium for a fraction of the cost of a football ticket. The festival is organized and hosted by the Oregon Marching Band, and is split into preliminary and finals competition.
