Marching band contests are held each weekend throughout the fall, concluding in four championship classification contests, which are held at the end of the marching season. Each show usually consists of seven to twelve bands in one or more of the four classifications. Classifications are based on total unit size.

Cavalcade is proud to be one of the first marching associations to use digital recorders for all marching shows!
