|25th Octoberfest Parade & Field Competition|
Band Registration Fees:
General Spectator Admission to Field Show Competition to be announced.
Octoberfest Band & Field Competition has been sanctioned by the National Federation of State High School Associations and will feature outstanding marching bands from high schools in Illinois, Missouri and Iowa. Octoberfest was established in 1996 with the goal of providing an outstanding performance opportunity within a competition. Schools will select the category in which they choose to be judged and will be ranked according to a standard of achievement established by the judges. Our goal is to provide a positive experience for every group that participates.
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.
