Band Parents' Day

(*Updated July 20, 2018)

We are excited to offer an excellent means of attending a Liberty University Marching Band performance is by participating in Band Parents’ Day. Our 30th annual Band Parents’ Day is scheduled this year on Friday and Saturday, October 12 and 13, 2018, and I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to attend. This is always one of the highlights of the marching season, and I am inviting all band members’ parents and their families to participate. Your day will be filled with activities that will give you an excellent idea of the varied schedule involved during our typical game days. We will begin with check-in at 6:00 p.m. on Friday evening, October 12 at the Montview Alumni Ballroom, followed by a Dinner Banquet in the same location at 7:00 p.m. Then on Saturday, you will begin by participating in our devotional period with Jonathan Falwell, pastor of Thomas Road Baptist Church at 10:15 a.m. in the School of Music Concert Hall. Our time together will focus on the spiritual theme of the season. We will then attend the football game in Williams Stadium, where Liberty University will face Troy University, and you will have reserved seating in the stadium together with the rest of our band families. Our day will conclude with our march back to the Band Room after the game.

Cost

The cost for Friday evening banquet and Saturday activities is $32.00 for each adult, $19.00 for youth ages 6-18, and free for children to age 5. The Band Parents' Day ticket includes dinner banquet, packet for the day, memorbilia, and football game admission. Band members who are planning to attend the banquet will be charged $19.00.  Please know that the cost is based on group pricing discounts, and we are not able to offer portions of the weekend “a la cart.” We usually have 500+ persons in attendance for the day, so don’t miss out! Please order your tickets by September 12, 2018 on our website at www.liberty.edu/bandparents or at the link below.  If you have any questions, please contact the band office .
