Battle of the Drumlines

Regionally and nationally, various associations and organizations exist solely to organize and host events and competitions that provide marching bands, drum corps, and drumlines the opportunity to not only compete, but to expose their friends, families and the local community to the marching arts activity.  In New York City, however, such an entity does not exist for the show-style drumline arena.

The Battle of the Drumlines was created as an extension of our mission to enhance the physical and social development of youth through the marching arts activity and to provide the New York City community with an opportunity to experience the excitement that is show-style marching band and drumlines.

The Battle of the Drumlines is a community and family-centered event that brings together high school and community-based drumlines in a positive and friendly competition. The event is typically held in mid-April.
