The Oakton Classic is a time-honored tradition that brings together student musicians and color guard members on a field of pageantry and skill, and provides them with an exciting opportunity to display their abilities outside of the classroom. Each year, dozens of high school marching bands from throughout the Northern Virginia area and beyond come to Oakton High School to participate in one of the region’s finest marching band competitions.

Band registration is now closed. Thank you for your interest and hope to see your band in our next Classic.
