Old West Weekend Band Competition to be held at Bearcat Stadium Saturday, October 17th

Old West Weekend is back again this year on Saturday, October 17th. It will be a bit different for 2020. Due to the health and safety concerns surrounding COVID-19 all of the Old West Weekend events will be held in Bearcat Stadium. Each school/school district will have a block of time for their performances. At the conclusion of their performances, bands and their fans will be asked to clear the stadium and there will be an intermission prior to the next school and their fans entering the stadium. Bands will perform for comments only this year. There will not be an admission fee for the fans, but we will take free-will donations to help cover the cost of our band judges.
