Admission to the contest is $10.00 for all spectators. Admission is free for children 3 years old and younger. Admission for senior citizens (65 years and older) is $5.00. All spectators will be given a wristband that is good for the entire contest (prelims and finals). There is no entrance to the contest, without a 2023 wristband. Cash is EXTREMELY preferred, but credit cards are accepted.
The top 10 scoring bands (regardless of class) will advance to finals. Finals order will be determined by a random draw. The top 5 scoring bands will perform in the later time slots 6-10. The remaining 5 bands in finals perform in the earlier time slots 1-5.
The MHS Band Boosters will be operating full service concessions at the stadium starting at 9:30am. Your patronage is greatly appreciated. As a reminder, Mansfield ISD prohibits cooking/grilling at the stadium.

The contest will be held regardless of weather. The artificial turf drains very quickly. Bands will shelter on buses if the weather becomes too severe. Warm-up and performance schedules may be altered to accommodate existing weather conditions. Should the weather continue to deteriorate, the contest may issue awards based on prelims performance. There are no refunds for admission fees.
