Thanks for your interest in NIMAP and the North Iowa Festival of Brass. The festival is a Drum Corps International (DCI) Open Class competition, hosted at Forest City High School. It features groups from througout the United States and Canada, and is the region's only event of its kind! One additonal detail that makes our competition unique is the fact that it is the LAST competition of the year, before the DCI World Championship competition the following week in Indianapolis, Indiana. These talented groups will have rehearsed all summer to present the very finest presentation of music and motion in the region.

Event Details
The competition begins on August 1st at 7:00 P.M., but the gates and concession stands open at 5:30 P.M..
The Forest City Music Boosters will have an exceptional selection of food, so feel free to come early, choose your spot in the stands (to mark with a blanket) and then enjoy a wonderful and well-priced meal.

Tickets (General Admission) are $10 in advance and $15 at the gate.
You can get the advanced tickets online until Noon today.

The competition will take place at the Forest City High School Football Field,
206 North School Street, Forest City, IA 50436.
