We are excited to officially invite you and your band to the 2021 Mid Iowa Band Championship. The contest will be taking place on Saturday, October 16th, and we are excited to be able to host a great show this year! Register here.
Our stadium features new home stands on the West side of the field and a newly finished main entrance, concessions area, and plaza. We also have a field turf surface and ample space for prop and equipment storage on site. And now that our construction is done, we have full access to all of our warm up areas.
In addition to a world class group of judges, an enthusiastic audience, and very helpful volunteers, you will also receive access to our director lounge throughout the evening which features complimentary food and beverages for you and your staff. In addition to your judge’s comments, each group will receive a video of their show taken from our press box and a drone video of their show from 200 feet in the air.
