A festival hosted by, surprisingly, Heritage Festivals.

Heritage Festivals is an association which supports all forms of music for children (high school instrumental programs, chorale programs, and also groups that have no school affiliations, but are made up of children). Their festivals consist of a wide mix of jazz bands, orchestras, choirs, and an occasional marching band or winter guard.

They host several festivals around the US for any group that wishes to make the trip, and also three (one east coast, one midwest, and one west coast) Festivals of Gold, in which only groups that have gotten a gold award at another festival can compete.
