The band earned straight superiors in all captions including overall band, color guard, percussion, and drum major. The band finished in first place in class 3A.

The Fannin County Band Booster Club hosted our third annual Blue Ridge Mountain Marching Festival October 13, 2012 where 13 bands from across the state and Tennessee came to compete. It was a very successful event, and we appreciate all the support. This annual event brings many to our community to eat at our restaurants, shop in our stores, and stay in our community overnight. We are proud to bring many visitors to our community to help support the local businesses that support our band and schools.
Last month, The Fannin County High School Marching Band also attended the Armuchee Marching Competition September 29th at Armuchee High School in Rome, GA.
