The Land of the Sky Marching Band Festival began in 1975 with four bands and Ronald McDonald providing entertainment between bands. Max Carland, president of the Enka Band Parents at the time, suggested that the band parents might want to try hosting a band festival, similar to the one in Bristol, Tennessee. A committee of Enka band parents, school personnel, and community members convened to plan and carry out the first band festival as a fundraiser to purchase uniforms for the Enka High Band Program, and on Saturday, Septemeber 27, 1975, the Land of The Sky Marching Band Festival was born. This festival has grown into a major fundraiser for the Enka Band Program but is a larger part of the Enka Community.
