Colorado Youth Pipe Band Schedule - 2022

Pipe band members are encouraged to attend practices, performances and competitions - they are fun and a great experience! But it is also understood that kids and families have a variety of commitments and priorities throughout the year.  This schedule is designed to give pipe band families an idea of what to expect in the coming year - additional dates may be added and some dates may be cancelled. Kids that are new to the band can start taking lessons at any time during the year.
