The Macon Marching Tigers are proud to host their 1st annual marching band festival in the great City of Maples! This festival will be held on Saturday, September 19th and feature a parade competition, indoor drumline competition, indoor auxiliary competition, and a field competition on our new turf field. Schools will be classified by school size using MSHSAA standards. This early contest will surely give you the feedback you need to keep your year progressing! Don't fret if you don't have the entire show on the field yet---judges will only evaluate what is seen/heard!
Fine arts are alive and well in Macon through the great support of community members! Not only does the school system have a thriving band program, but you can find artistic ventures all throughout the community with museums and professional, live theater. Director of bands, Jamie Baker, has been participating in marching festivals for over 23 years and knows what it takes to run a great festival other band directors will find educational and enjoyable. This event is organized to bring out all the great things other festivals do, but in one location! You will find the drive easy to Macon, as we are located at the intersection of Highways 63 and 36---both being four-lane roads from all directions.
We hope you give us great consideration as you plan your fall marching calendars, as our community will graciously welcome you to our Macon - City of Maples Marching Festival!
