Baker University and the Baker University Bands will host the annual Baker University 1A-5A Marching Festival at Liston Stadium on the Baker University campus. The Baker University Band Department and Meyer Music will sponsor this year’s festival.

Marching bands, color guards and drum lines are invited to participate in this KSHSAA- and MSHSAA-approved event. Each ensemble will receive a rating and comments (written and audio) from each judge. In addition, each group will receive a participation plaque and a DVD of its performance. The Jeremy Frye Grand Championship Trophy will be awarded to the highest-scoring band in the festival. Ensembles may choose to participate for “comments only” and receive no rating.

  • Afternoon 1:30 – 5 p.m.
  • Evening 5 – 8 p.m.

Registration is now closed and will reopen August 5, 2016.
