Each year, the Rose Parade marching bands selected to participate in the upcoming Rose Parade are also invited to perform at the Tournament of Roses’s Bandfest. Over the course of two days, each marching band, along with its auxiliary members, performs a field show that showcases their musicianship and unique talents. This annual tradition takes place at Pasadena City College and all are invited to attend this dynamic event.
