|Quincy Octoberfest Parade & Field Competition|
To be determined
The day will consist of two performances, the OCTOBERFEST PARADE at 2:00 p.m. in historic downtown Quincy and the OCTOBERFEST FIELD COMPETITION at 5:00 p.m. held at the QHS FLINN STADIUM. Flinn Stadium is an ASTROTURF field. Because of you and your band’s excellent reputation in the marching arena, we invite you to participate in BOTH events or the Parade only/Field Show only option.
Tickets for the field competition will be sold to the public. All participants will be admitted free. The day will culminate with the presentation of trophies at an awards ceremony featuring all bands on the field! A Sweepstakes Trophy will be presented to the band receiving the highest point total from both the parade and field competition. The Sweepstakes Trophies have been awarded to Columbia Hickman High School, Clark County High School, Fort Zumwalt South, Geneseo High School, Metamora, Rock Island High School, Jefferson City High School, Troy-Buchanan High School, Timberland, Northwest High School and Mt. Pleasant High School in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.
The entry fee is $200.00 per group for both the field and parade competition and $50.00 for those schools entering the parade only category. Please enter your band's information on the attached form. A more detailed data sheet will be sent to you closer to the competition date. The deadline for registration is September 20, 2019.
