Band Jam


Founded in 2009 by All‐City Band Director Dr. Marcus Pimpleton, Band Jam is an outdoor marching band jamboree where spectators can enjoy full performances of the marching bands many typically see only in passing on parade routes.  This non-competitive event, held each year the night before Seattle’s Torchlight Parade, is free and open to the public as a celebration of what we all know to be the best part of any parade – the bands.

Date: Saturday, July 24th, 2021

Time: 2:00 PM 

Location: Memorial Stadium

*Please note COVID protocols will be in place for this event. See "2021 Band Jam COVID Protocols below
