THE FINEST MARCHING BANDS WILL PERFORM.
HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO BE AMOUNG THEM.
The National Collegiate Marching Band Championship Bowl will be an annual event in Columbia, South Carolina to foster healthy competition and goodwill among collegiate marching bands across the United States. Our goal is to increase awareness of the significant role of college marching bands in American culture, while encouraging participation and support from both the public and private sectors.
The National Collegiate Marching Band Championship Bowl (NCMBCB) represents a longoverdue recognition of the unique significance of our nation’s collegiate marching bands, and the role they hold both in the athletic and academic communities.
On behalf of Mayor Steve Benjamin of Columbia, SC, Experience Columbia SC Sports and the NCMBCB Organizing Committee, it is our pleasure to offer an invitation to your fine marching band to take part in the inaugural National Collegiate Marching Band Championship Bowl.
The event will take place on November 30-December 2, 2018 here in Columbia at the new Spirit Communications Park. There will also be an opportunity to take part in the televised holiday parade on December 1, beginning at 10am.
There’s something for everyone. The event will feature exhibitions and competition categories based on marching style and band size.
We are looking forward to hosting American college bandsmen for an inspiring, enjoyable weekend of camaraderie here in our capital city. Thank you for your time and consideration. Please reply by filling out the “Agreement to Participate” form by May 5, 2018, to let us know your plans so that we can proceed with organization of the bowl.
