The high school bands competed against those of comparable size, beginning with the smallest in the morning. A total of 20 bands from across the state took part in the competition, which began in 1980 to provide a competitive arena for displaying the musical and marching skills of local bands. In its 31 years, the Pageant of Bands has grown to include marching bands from across the state. Some of the bands participating this year are from Farmington, Santa Fe and Rio Rancho.

The schedule for APS high school bands is as follows:


An awards ceremony followed the performances at 4 p.m.
