Allentown Drum Corps Show Promises Fun For All

Carnival-like atmosphere accompanies Drum Corps International arrival

For the past 33 years, the city of Allentown has become the center of the drum corps universe as the Drum Corps International "carnival" of DCI Eastern championships rolls into the Lehigh Valley.


The championships have all the can't-miss carnival elements: Funnel cakes, French fries, drum corps rehearsing in the park and then performing before some of the largest and definitely the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable drum corps crowds in the nation.

These traditions are one of the reasons The Cadets and Youth Education in the Arts followed the road to Allentown to find a new home in Eastern Pennsylvania seven years ago.

The Cadets have a select few terrific seats available for both Friday, Aug. 5 and Saturday, Aug. 6 evening shows. See the whole lineup below, and select your seats online now.
