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-judge panel, we 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 September 13, 2024 or when applications are received for the first 20 band performances.

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

If you have any questions regarding our event, please do not hesitate to contact us at

We look forward to seeing you on September 28, 2024.
