Donate Items to Hospitality – It’s just good manners to make sure your guests are comfortable.The hospitality room is where the judges, directors, and band staff can go to take a break, relax and have a bit to eat during their day at PIFT.  Sign up below to help make a good impression and ensure repeat attendance at our annual event.

Event Volunteers – The most important building material is you!We have 170 Adult Volunteer Shifts to fill.  This is the one event that we need everyone to take a shift (or more).  We need the manpower of our entire music family to offer this event to host approximately 12 marching bands consisting of 1,400 musicians plus directors, chaperones, and equipment crew.  In addition, a couple thousand spectators attend to witness the talents of our amazing area high schools drill while performing fantastic musical compositions.  It is FUN!  It is FREE!  Make Music Possible and sign up below.

Student Event Volunteers – Invite your friends to join you in the fun at PIFT.  Any student can help out.  Earn service hours.  This is the best time you will have volunteering all year.  Ask your section leader if you don’t believe me.
