The Cavalcade of Bands is proud to announce that for the 2015 CBA Marching Band Championships we will be located at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, PA and Kottmeyer Stadium on the campus of Downingtown School District in Downingtown, PA. We are very excited that we are able to use both facilities on Saturday, November 14 and Sunday, November 15, 2015. This makes sure that the length of Championship days and the length of shows is not as long is in the past.

We wish the best of luck to all Cavalcade members!

The new schedule for this year's Championships is as follows:

Saturday, November 14:
Hershey, PA - American A, American Open, Patriot Open
Downingtown, PA - Independence A, Independence Open, Patriot A

Sunday, November 15:
Hershey, PA - Liberty A, Liberty Open

Directors wishing to schedule a Cavalcade of Bands marching band show for 2015 should contact the CBA's new Marching Band Administrator, Sue Smith, using Visit the CBA Marching webpage and click on - 2015 Schedule/Scores - to view shows that have been confirmed. Thank you!


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!
