Welcome

Falcon Fest will take place Saturday, September 22, 2018 on the campus of Wheaton North High School. We are very excited to host your band, students and families. Thank you to the scores of volunteer parents from your school who support your band and traveled to our competition to enjoy a day of music by high schools from the area. Our goal is to celebrate student musicians, their very hard work and host your time with us to the best of our ability.
