JOIN US.

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, to let us know your plans so that we can proceed with organization of the bowl.

Something BIG is coming—we can’t wait! We hope you will join us. Have questions? Don’t hesitate to contact Joe to learn more.
