When you’re an organization celebrating a landmark 85th Anniversary, you want to invite as many friends as possible to join you for the party!

Which is why The Cadets are inviting you to the biggest space we could host our 85th Anniversary Celebration: MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ! Join us on July 2 for the Drum Corps: An American Tradition competition and a thrilling evening of performances celebrating the maroon and gold.

The event marks The Cadets return home to their Northern New Jersey roots to the site of one of the world’s spectacular stadiums for the metropolitan New York City’s exclusive annual appearance by DCI’s very best performers.

What’s more, through an arrangement with the NJ State Fair, there will be plenty of activity and excitement happening throughout the MetLife Stadium Complex as we celebrate Drum & Bugle Corps/High School Marching Band Day at the New Jersey State Fair, held in the adjacent parking lots until midnight!

Add to that, we’ve invited some great guests to entertain and amaze including the Bluecoats from Canton, OH, Boston Crusaders from Boston, MA, Music City from Nashville, TN, Jersey Surf from Camden County, NJ, Raiders from Burlington, NJ, 7th Regiment from New London, CT and a memorable joint performance by The Cadets and The Cadets 85th Anniversary Alumni Corps.

Plus, you can check out special performances in MetLife Central just inside the main gates of the stadium before taking your seats for a full night of top marching music performances.
