DCI Eastern Championships


Please note: This event has been cancelled for 2020.

The 44th annual DCI Eastern Championship brings to Allentown’s J. Birney Crum stadium the top Junior Drum and Bugle Corps from across the United States. A Drum Corps is an independent youth organization comprised of 140, 14- 22-year olds.

The Championship is a two night event, with half of the competitors performing each night. Each 11-minute performance combines music, marching, and special effects. The music may be classical, jazz, Broadway, or anything else in between. Poetry in motion describes the constant movement of the musicians, accompanied by the color and majesty of flags, sabers, rifles, and numerous props. The members spend their summers traveling the country on buses and sleeping on gym floors.

Their goal is the perfect performance. The amphitheater construction of the stadium enhances the music and provides excellent viewing. Come join the thousands of fans from across the country who have made Allentown the longest continuous running stop on the DCI tour.
