Jupiter Festival of Bands

Jupiter High School is proud to host the Fourth Annual Jupiter Festival of Bands on Saturday, November 10, 2018!
Our competition is uniquely positioned to positioned to help YOU prepare for FMBC Semi-Finals as the only October/November competition in the FMBC SE region with an artificial turf field.  This competition is a rare opportunity for your marching band to get a feel for the artificial turf before Finals in the Dome!
A judges’ critique will occur immediately following the Jupiter High School Band’s exhibition performance.  Each band will receive time with all of the judges to further discuss their performance.  This is a GREAT way to get ready for Tampa!
