2017 Marine Corps Invitational Announcement

USBands and the Marine Corps Invitational will once again return to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in 2017. This year the Marine Corps Invitational will be held on October 28, later than in previous years. This will also hopefully feature better weather than last year's competition! 

Steve Petzinger, Director of USBands, said, "We are excited to return to the beautiful city of Annapolis, MD as the Marine Corps Invitational returns to Navy-Marine Corps Stadium for the fifth year in a row! With bands from all over the Northeast, the Marine Corps Invitational continues to be one of the highlights of the USBands Fall Marching Band season."

Since 2013, the Marine Corps Invitational has more than doubled in size from 22 bands in 2013 to 44 bands in 2016, to an expected 50 registered bands in 2017. Bands have traveled from as far away as Upstate New York and Central Connecticut to participate at the historic stadium. Even with six additional spots for this year's competition, registration is expected to fill quickly.

Register your band to compete at the Marine Corps Invitational on March 4th, National Sign-Up Day powered by CCIS Travel. If you have questions about this show or any of our other 2017 competitions, please email us at
