Tickets for the contest are available only at the gate on the date of the contest. Ticket prices are as follow:

The competition is limited to the first 32 applicants. Bands compete within their classes during preliminary competition. The top 10 bands from preliminary competition (regardless of class size) advance to the final round of competition.
Performance times are scheduled in reverse order of receipt of entry applications (the first application received performs latest in the day). The Grand Champion from the previous competition has the option to be scheduled to perform last in the preliminary competition, and the Zia New Mexico champion (if not the grand champion) is scheduled to perform in the penultimate position.
