We hope you will join us this year as we host our 25th Annual Tarpon Springs Outdoor Music Festival, on Saturday, October 23, 2021, and FMBC sanctioned event. Our format for the show remains consistent with previous years, with exception of the Clinician Critique. We hope to be able to bring back the critique element in 2022. In the meantime, we will once again invite all band officers, drum majors, and members of the senior class onto the field for the Awards Retreat. The festival is open to the public and this year we are proud to partner with Box5 Media to offer both in-person and live stream viewing options. Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions. We hope that you will be part of our 25th Annual event!

For more information, please contact Howard Weinstein, festival chairperson at (727) 560-3979, or via email at
