Camellia marching band festival

The Camellia Marching band festival will operate as both a Festival and Clinic for your band. This event will have a 3-judge panel for band adjudication. In addition to our 3 panel judge will have an additional judge observe your band and give an educational clinic following your band performance. There will also be a percussion judge, a majorette/dance judge, Colorguard judge and a drum major judge.

The festival registration will close after the deadline of 15-September-2021 or when applications are received for the first 12 band performances.

Trophies will be awarded for bands, percussion, color guard, drum major, dance, and majorette who receive superior ratings.

*Due the size of our venue. We are unable to take bands with more than 100 members at this time.


    • Bands are scheduled at 10-20 minute intervals.

    • Order of performance within each class is determined by payment received postmark. Earliest postmark performs last in class. Special considerations are given when circumstances warrant such.

    • All bands must perform in uniform. All band and auxiliary officers who will participate in the awards ceremony must be in uniform. Officers are to line up on the front hash mark. No other student will be permitted on the field.

  • At the conclusion of the ceremony, all band members, parents, etc., who are not involved in the awards presentation must not enter the field area. Do not allow your students to climb the fence onto the field. This is not only for the safety of everyone, but also to preserve the dignity of those students accepting trophies for their bands.
