Lake Waconia Band Festival Week!

We are looking forward to the Lake Waconia Band Festival Saturday June 17th at 6:00 pm.

This year we will have 17 bands marching down main street!  

This “bands only” parade competition is on of the highlights of their summer marching season.
Top talented bands are competing this year which promises to be an evening of fun and entertainment!

The parade begins at 6:00pm at City Square Park and proceeds along Main Street, Waconia. An awards ceremony is held at Bayview Elementary immediately following the parade.
