The Visalia Education Foundation Band Showcase returns for our 19th year to give Visalia high school students an opportunity to share their talents. This event was started by Foundation member Terry Garrett, who passed away this year on August 30, to give our high school bands, cheer and dance groups an event to demonstrate their skills and raise funds for their programs. It has been held every year since 2001 with the exception of 2020 and 2021 because of COVID. 

This great evening can be a wonderful family event to enjoy some great food beginning at 5:30 with the show starting at 7 PM at Visalia Community Stadium located on the Golden West High School campus. Younger students in attendance can learn to appreciate what opportunities await them if they pursue the programs VUSD offers them in elementary and middle school. 

Please join us on October 2nd and invite your family and friends!
