$15.00 – Saturday ALL DAY Pass



The cost of each program will be $5. The programs will includes photos and biographies of each performing group as well as judges’ bios, the performance schedule, and a plethora of other relevant information.


Video Sales/Private Video Recording

The Johnston Community School District strives to be completely compliant with United States copyright law. Because synchronization licenses have not been obtained for the music that choirs will perform, there will be no sale of videos at our event. Each director will be provided with an archival video recording of their choir’s performance for educational purposes. Audience members are prohibited from making their own recordings of performance. The performances will be streamed live.



The Johnston Vocal Music Parents Association (VPA) will be serving concessions all day and evening in the cafeteria. A wide array of breakfast, lunch, and dinner items will be served.


Payments Accepted:

Showzam! accepts debit and credit cards for the purchase of most items. Please see the list below for what is accepted:
