The 2023 Battle of the Bands and Food Vans is scheduled for Sept. 2nd, 2023. You can look forward to a day of Music, a ton of Food, lots of Shopping and Fun time for the entire family!

We had over 2,600 attendees at our last battle of the Bands and Food Vans and are hoping you will join in and help us increase that number! This event hosts two separate competitions at once — Music and Food!

The bands will each play a set of their music while spectators set up areas in the grass with friends & family. Together we can enjoy listening to music, sipping cold beverages, and tasting all the contestant’s food.

The event has a $5 per person entry fee at the gate, 12 years old and under are free with paying adult. Every paid entrant will receive 5 VOTING CHIPS and then can choose to vote for their favorite Band or Food Van or any combination of the two!

A total of NINE Bands and NINE Food Vans will be selected to compete at this year’s event. The 9 bands will begin their sets on the hour starting at 12PM until 8PM!

NEW THIS YEAR!!!   Frontier Park Playground!!!

Just across the fence from the Frontier Park Soccer fields…the New Frontier Park Playground, just built and completed late last Fall, is an Inclusive Playground allowing kids of all ages and capabilities to play. This Playground was funded with donations, grants, and funding by the City of Show Low. Right next to the Playground is a brand new Splashpad for kids to play with water! We are hoping for many sunny days in the 80s next Summer and Fall!
