The 76th Battle of Flowers® Band Festival is entitled "The Magic of Make Believe!"

Students from more than 30 high school bands from San Antonio and surrounding areas will join forces to present an entertaining musical evening that is undoubtedly one of Fiesta's most popular events. Some of the highlights will include Herald Trumpets saluting Fiesta royalty, parades of high stepping bands with colorful flags and twirlers, and specially chosen feature bands performing their award-winning UIL shows for the crowd. At the end of the evening, all 3,000 musicians will perform together on the field in a spectacular crowd-pleasing finale!

The Battle of Flowers® Association sponsors an annual competition among area high school students to design the cover for the Band Festival program. From among the entries, 30 drawings will be selected by a local judge. Those entries will be framed and displayed at a reception honoring the students and their art instructors. The top five winners will receive cash awards. The winning submission will be displayed on the cover of more than 10,000 programs.

The Band Festival is organized and sponsored by the Battle of Flowers® Association, which was chartered in 1914 with the mission of celebrating Texas history. The Band Festival first became a part of Fiesta in 1935. An executive committee composed of area band directors and music educators works with Battle of Flowers® Association volunteers to plan the evening's program.
