Event Hosting - Volunteer Sign-Ups are OPEN!

Did you know our hosted events bring in thousands of dollars to the band program? Without these events, and your volunteer hours, our band fees would go up and our program would not be as amazing as it is today! If you have not selected your volunteer slots, please do so asap!


There is a tab for each event in the sign-up, and if you are wondering what a position entails there is a link to the page of job descriptions! If you have any questions, please email Amanda Groce at events@fcbands.org.
