Welcome to Playathon Central

2016 The Wild Wild West

Friday November 4 – All Day

The Playathon is the major fundraiser for the Rio band program, a concert featuring all of our groups, and a tradition that began in 1981. The money we raise buys music, instruments, supplies, provides travel opportunities, and generally allows the Rio Band to continue as a first – rate program. This event has grown to be a lot of fun for our students as well as a connection to the community, and a bond with our middle and elementary feeder schools. Basically, it’s a blast. So, today the tradition continues with 17 hours of non-stop music

This page has the information you need to participate.

Attendance is mandatory for all band students and band families are required to support the Playathon through volunteering on the event day and food donations.

Planning meetings are typically every Monday at 7 pm in the band room Check the Events Calendar for specific dates and times.
