Apple Blossom Parade Marching Band

Early May is ushered in with pink, green and the spirited sounds of marching bands!  Take part in the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival® Parade or any number of other band events in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, VA.


About the Parade

The Grand Parade is the signature event of the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival® and a great performance opportunity for marching bands.  Elaborate floats, classic cars, special units and marching bands welcome spring as they wind through Old Town Winchester.  The family-friendly parade lasts approximately 3 hours with more than 170 participating units. Your marching band will love taking part in the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival.


How to Apply

Contact a student trip planner like Kaleidoscope Adventures for participation information.  If you want to add to your performance experience, plan to stay an extra day!  Civil War history, outdoor fun and exciting entertainment can be part of your student group’s visit to the Shenandoah Valley.


I have been traveling with Kaleidoscope for 19 years and still continue to be impressed by their expertise and willingness to go the extra mile to make my trip a success!
