Mid-Atlantic States Expansion!

Now a 2-day event November 2-3

Due to an overwhelming response to this year's Mid-Atlantic States Championships, we are pleased to announce that this event will now take place over two days on November 2 and 3.


USBands is working on formatting the event to accommodate bands to maximize participation. The division of groups for Saturday and Sunday is yet to be determined but will be available soon to give groups adequate time to adjust if needed. If you have a preference of competing on Saturday or Sunday, please contact the USBands office. Any ensemble that was previously told that they had been “wait-listed” should check to see if the event has been added to their schedule by logging into Band Data here.

In addition to bands from Maryland and Virginia, several groups from other area states have already registered, and we welcome all ensembles to attend!  

Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, located in Annapolis, MD, is also the home to the Marine Corps Invitational event on September 28 and the Drum Corps Associates World Championships over Labor Day weekend.

The combined State Championship will run much like our New England State Championships. Ensembles will still compete within their groups and classifications, and in addition, a winner from each state will be crowned.

Directors with questions can contact any member of Team USBands at 610-821-0345. If you would like to update your schedule, you may do so by adding this great event to your schedule here.
