Fox River Invitational

Since 1996, the Fox River Marching Band Invitational competition at Waukesha West has showcased some of the best bands from around Wisconsin. Be sure to join us for a day of great music as some of the finest marchers in the state perform, including our own Cadets, who always thrill the home crowd with a judged exhibition at the end of the competition. It’s a great way to enjoy a beautiful fall afternoon and support West’s entire band program!

Tickets for seniors, students ages 6-18 and military members with an ID are $5.00 and children under 6 are free. (School district IDs are not valid for this event).
