festival of bands

Lincoln High School joins other Sioux Falls schools to host the Festival of Bands, which takes place the first Saturday of October each year. The Festival brings bands from multiple states to Sioux Falls to compete in parade and field marching performances. As a host school:

  • We play in exhibition (not for competition or scoring) in both the parade and the field marching events. 

  • Our band families are responsible for staffing a number of volunteer shifts.
