The University of Arizona Band Day is a community and educational outreach program for secondary schools throughout the southwest region. This full-day marching band exhibition invites entrants from approximately 40 high school bands to perform their original half-time shows. These groups are adjudicated by some of the most respected professionals in the music education field today.
Participating bands are rated in six professional categories, followed by an award ceremony at the end of the day. The distinguished “Nunamaker Award” is presented to the most outstanding group(s) of the festival. The “Pride of Arizona” also appears in two exhibition performances. Band Day provides high school students the opportunity to gain knowledge and expertise as a performing group. They are given a chance to visit The University of Arizona campus and be motivated by observing UA’s “Pride of Arizona” Marching Band in action.
Band Day is open to the public. Admission is purchased at the gate. Complimentary parking is provided in designated stadium lots. Food, refreshments, and a festival program are also made available.
