Applications for the 2019 LA County Fair High School Marching Band Parade Competition Are Here!
Application Deadline is June 7th

Did you know that nearly 1 in 4 bands go home with a cash prize at our competition? That could be your band!
We will once again be giving away $22,000 worth of cash prizes. We want everyone to have a chance to win some money, which is why we have broken our competition into three competing classes, where one grand prize winner will win $10,000!

If you don't receive our packet, feel free to contact us so we can check the address we have on file for your school to ensure you get our packets in the future.
