Tag Days

What are Tag Days? Well, let me explain…….

TAG DAYS is an event where Marching Band & Color Guard students stand outside local businesses playing music & waving flags to solicit donations from patrons visiting the business. In exchange for their donation, they are given a “tag” expressing our appreciation for their support. This is a fun opportunity to hang out with friends, play music and make money for Band.

This is our BIGGEST fundraiser of the season and our success depends on 100% participation from all students in Marching Band & Color Guard participation. 

All students in Marching Band and Color Guard are asked to commit to at least 4 hours over the 3-day weekend. All time slots are 2 hours long., so we request that you sign-up for at least 2 slots. You will earn service hours for your time for Silver Cord or NHS.

This event runs from 6:00 am on Friday until 4:00 pm on Sunday with MANY, MANY time slots in between. So there is something there to fit everyone’s schedule. Heading out of town for the weekend? You can still participate!  Sign up early and get those 6 am time slots on Friday. Have to work? We have plenty of time slots available so sign up early to find a time slot that works with your schedule. Remember, it’s only 4 hours over a long 3-day weekend.

Incoming Marching Band students, you will participate in this too! Pick someone in your section to sign-up with to make it fun. Talk to Mr. Krivosik or your section leaders to get ideas on what to play.

Parents, we need you too! In order to insure the safety of our students, we always have at least one parent at every location at all times. We also need volunteers back at “home base” to check volunteers in/out, count money, etc.

A portion of the proceeds will be applied towards the Bands Of America Marching Band trip. 

We understand that our new members will have questions regarding this event. Please see the attached informational sheet to help answer those questions.

More detailed instructions will go out the week before the event. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact Boosters with questions at

We really do have a lot of fun with this event and the community is always excited to see us out and about.

Let’s do this!
