Neewollah Marching Festival Saturday November 1, 2014

The Neewollah Marching Festival is one of the longest running festivals in the state or area.  In accordance with regulations approved by KSHSAA, we are able to offer to any band that wishes to compete for top honors, the opportunity to compete in the Best of Class category.  This is an option and not a requirement for anyone entering the parade and field competition.  The Best of Class category will be grouped into four groups, based on your band size, not district size. In addition, there will be Trophies awarded, in each class, for the Outstanding Drum Major, Outstanding Color Guard, Outstanding Percussion Line.  The GRAND CHAMPION OF THE FESTIVAL will also receive a trophy.
Bands are welcome to come and march in the parade without being judged or critiqued with no charge.  If you choose to enter the Field Competition, your group is required to participate in the Grand Parade.  This requirement is per the Neewollah Board of Directors.  Please understand this requirement when considering participation.
