Band Day 2023 looks to be a great event! The Broncos Stampede was the first NFL drumline we ever hosted. They continue to put on a great show and are wonderful with the student musicians. The 188th Army Band is another returning favorite! Vivian Kalmik will be this year's Parade Marshal. And be sure to check out the other events going on in town, especially the new event downtown, Art on the Street.

The upcoming Band Day Parade in Williston will include two special guests as the main attractions. The Denver Broncos Stampede and the 188th Army Band of the North Dakota National Guard will march alongside local bands on Saturday, May 13. Similar to last year, the parade will start at the Williston ARC, travel up to 2nd Avenue West, and end at Harmon Park. The parade starts at Noon/Central Time. For those who prefer not to attend in person, the Band Day parade will be streamed with commentary via Facebook Live. Follow Band Day page on Facebook for more information.

The committee will also conduct silent auction this year featuring one-of-a-kind birdhouses made by Williston Area Visual Artists members. They include Phyllis Sederquest's American landscape design, Cliff Sundt's Norwegian turf-roofed home,  Daphne Clark's Van Gogh-inspired home, Dennis Grondahl's stars-and-stripes home, and Lily Grondahl's sunflower cabin.
