Annual band festival returns for 14th year
WHEATON – The Wheaton Band Festival will return this summer, drawing five big bands from around the area to the city for two days at Wheaton’s Memorial Park.
The Chicago Brass Band will kick off the free event at 7:15 p.m. July 19 with concessions run by the Friends of the Wheaton Municipal Band. It will be followed by the Joliet American Legion Band at 8:15 p.m. The next day, the Fox Valley Concert Band, Switchtime Jazz Ensemble and the Northshore Concert Band play starting at 6 p.m.
This year will mark the event’s 14th annual appearance at Memorial Park. It is, however, the first year that the festival is not helmed by longtime Wheaton resident Glen Arnold and his wife Margaret Ann, who started the festival and were two of its main fundraisers and organizers.
