The Crimson Cavalcade of Bands is an exciting event sponsored by the Million Dollar Band and provides high school marching bands the opportunity to perform for other area high school bands in a supportive and friendly environment.

This is a fantastic performance opportunity high school bands!

We are pleased to announce that the University of Alabama Bands will be hosting the 13th Annual Crimson Cavalcade of Bands on Tuesday, September 19, 2023. The event will be held at the Tuscaloosa County High School Stadium. The Crimson Cavalcade of Bands is a NON-COMPETITIVE exhibition organized and hosted by the University of Alabama Bands to showcase the outstanding high school bands in our area. The purpose of this event is to provide an outlet for these bands to share fine performances with other regional ensembles, and to receive constructive comments from qualified professional music educators.

Your band will not only have the opportunity to perform in exhibition, but also to watch and learn from many other ensembles.

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity whether you intend to attend marching competitions or festivals later in the fall or just entertain your fans at your football games.
