Band Competition @ Western Guilford & Ledford High Schools

We will be going to Golden Corral between our two competitions on 9/28. Students should bring $10 cash by Friday or Saturday morning to pay for this meal. (We have been quoted this all-inclusive price but must pay on one check to get the special pricing.) 

General competition advice & information:

  • Just as at football games, competitions are a cash only venue.
  • Students may desire some extra spending money to purchase food, drink, etc. while watching the other bands perform.  
  • Festival admission prices vary but should be between $5 - $10 for spectators. 
  • Programs/performance schedules will be available. As some are more involved/elaborate than others, the price can range from FREE to $3 or $4.
  • Be sure to cheer loudly before, during (primarily after solos) and after the performance to show your Marching Black Knight pride and support! 
  • Remember to be respectful of other bands and their fans. It is improper and in poor taste to enter and/or exit the spectator seating area while any band is performing. All these bands work hard & deserve our respect.  
  • Locations: 

    Western Guilford High School - 409 Friendway Rd, Greensboro, NC 27410

    Ledford High School - 140 Jesse Green Rd, High Point, NC 27265
