The Pinecrest High School Marching Patriots will host Band Fest at the John Williams football stadium in Pinehurst, NC on September 28th, 2019.  North Carolina bands ranging from Class 1A to Class 4A regional bands compete, with six judges deciding the best bands in the areas of color guard, drum major, percussion, marching and more. Each band is scheduled to play a 15-minute set with five minute transition times in between. The Pinecrest band will appear last in an exhibition performance.

The event is a major fundraiser which enables the Marching Patriots to purchase much needed new instruments and equipment, as well as cover transportation costs for the competition season.
