Sunday, October 21, join Vanguard at Avaya Stadium in San Jose as we help celebrate “Santa Clara Day” with the San Jose Earthquakes soccer team!
The Earthquakes’ final regular season home match of 2018 will kick off at 2:00pm – but make sure you show up plenty early because we’ll be there jamming out and pumping up fans on their way to the game. We’ll also be performing the National Anthem, and Carl Huang, 2018 SCV Head Drum Major, will take part in a special Santa Clara Community recognition ceremony to honor SCV’s first DCI championship in 19 years.
So grab a friend and come out to the game to enjoy music, food, and fun for all ages. We’ve even got a special friends & family offer for you!
