Youth in Music Band Championships has moved again! Unfortunately the Chanhassen stadium was damaged by all of the spring rains, thus forcing us to find a new venue at a rather late date.  The 2014 home for Youth In Music Championships will be Farmington High School on Saturday October 11, 2014. 

Our schedule in 2014 will include Class A, AA, and AAA Championships in parallel with Minnesota State Championships in Class A, AA, and AAA,  similar to our afternoon sessions, previously in the Metrodome. After receiving feedback from band directors, we will NOT hold the evening Regional Championships until we return to an indoor stadium.


Volunteers make our show possible.  Join us in making memories for thousands of students and fans! Volunteers receive free admittance to the show, free T-shirt, a free lunch and free parking!  Click on the volunteer icon on the right for more information and to sign up.


Reserved tickets are now on sale!  Please note this is a smaller stadium, and front sideline seating will be limited. Because of this caveat, we are selling a greater portion of the tickets as reserved.  Click the icon on the right to order your reserved tickets today! General admission tickets will be available at the box office the day of the show, as well as reserved tickets.

Day of Show Pricing: Reserved $15, Adult General Admission $10, Student/Sr General Admission $5
