This festival is geared towards the smaller band but all bands are welcome and will have a great experience! This festival features an opportunity for your band in a competitive or rating only format on the field, in parade, or in our drum line and color guard festival. Please join us for a fun-filled day! Our concession stand will be open throughout the day for your convenience! Enjoy a performance on our newly constructed turf field with seating for 1800 fans and a parade through downtown Monroe City. The top 3 places will be awarded in each class (or half of the class for those with more than 6 in their division..) as well as rating trophies in both parade and field events. (No one goes home empty-handed but the rating will mean something to your students... not just a participation plaque.
(Parade, field, indoor auxiliaries, indoor drumline. Pick one or all!)
