Have you heard the news?
Students from John Bapst’s Band and Chorus will join Portland’s Shoestring Theatre in leading the opening parade of the 2019 American Folk Festival on the Bangor Waterfront through the streets of the Bangor Waterfront, Friday, Aug. 23.

American Folk Festival executive director Heather McCarthy said, “Having John Bapst Memorial High School, an institution with more than 90 years of educational achievement under its belt, contribute to this parade with the talents of its marching band will create a very memorable beginning to this festival.”
