2020 VMBC Event Calendar
"Due to the many challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the VMBC will not be promoting or sanctioning any local, regional, or state competitions for the 2020-2021 school year. This does not preclude local bands from competing or hosting their own band contest, it simply will not be sanctioned by the VMBC this year."
VMBC provides three levels of competition Affiliated, Aligned, and Invitational. All of the competitions use the same judges sheets.
Affiliated competitions are held throughout VA and have a chief judge on staff that has gone through VMBC judges training and passed on pertinent information and expectations to the other judges.
Regional competitions are held at three different locations. These venues will provide judges with the best vantage point to see your group and is equipped with a turf field. Regional competitions will be staffed by a fully trained judges panel. Regional shows will have a color guard and percussion judge.
VMBC Championships is held at the end of the VMBC season. It will also have a full panel of trained judges and use the VMBC sheets. The VMBC Championships is intended to be the premiere show of the season in the best stadiums in Virginia with the most qualified panel of judges available.
