Welcome!

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.
