Homecoming Parade and Band Day
Saturday, October 9, 2021
Attention Band Directors
The University of Idaho Vandal Marching Band would like to invite your band to participate in our Homecoming Parade and Pregame Show on October 9, 2021.
The annual Homecoming Parade travels through downtown Moscow. Bands must check-in by 9:30 a.m. The parade begins at 10 a.m. Awards will be given to outstanding elementary, middle school, and high school bands.
Band Day Pregame Show
The Pregame Show will feature visiting bands with the U of I Vandal Marching Band — we typically have around 1,200 students on the field. Rehearsal will run from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., immediately following the parade. Performance will begin at approximately 1:45 p.m., followed by a 2 p.m. kickoff.
Pregame music will be available to you the last week of August via mail download (pdf files).
The registration form should be returned by Friday, September 24 in order to guarantee seats for your band. Logistical details will be emailed to band directors on Friday, October 1.
