OJR MPO Cavalcade

50th OJR Cavalcade (2021)

Saturday, October 2, 2021

Gates open at 3:30 pm, show begins at 4:30 pm 

The Owen J. Roberts Music Parent Organization Band Cavalcade is the BIG event of the season!  In its 50th year, this is the MPO’s largest event and is known throughout the area as one of the best shows around! This event is only successful with the help of our wonderful band community. We need help to pull this off - roughly 100+ volunteers! Please consider how you can support this amazing show and you will have a blast in the process! 

Opportunities include : hospitality | radio assistant| audio assistant | concessions (pickups (pizza, hoagie, pretzel), cashier, counter service, food service, cold beverages, hot chocolate | lending of coolers, thermoses, crock pots, roasters | facilities setup| facilities cleanup | parking | golf cart shuttle | band attendants | ushers | basket contest | candy grams | program sales | ticket sales and will call; just keep scrolling

Our home show is our opportunity to show off our amazing bands to friends, family, and our community! As much as we enjoy watching the bands perform at football games and other cavalcades, this event is "our party."

Most volunteers can still watch their student's band perform. Timeslots are structured so that if you are interested in watching the middle school perform (6:15pm), you can sign up for a later shift. If you are interested in watching the high school perform (8:15pm), please consider signing up for an earlier shift.

Please consider including your phone number in the optional field provided. This will enable you to be contacted during the event if needed.
