 Waseca Marching Classic Celebration The Waseca Marching Classic is noted for its hospitality and well-rounded experience for participating bands. Details such as 1-hour clinics, a large community parade and a fireworks display have become hallmarks of the Classic.

In 2019 the Classic will celebrate its 32nd year. The Classic Parade features approximately 10 marching bands and more than 100 total units. Thousands of spectators line the 3/4-mile parade route which travels on State Street from 2nd Avenue SE to 6th Avenue NE. Throughout the day, clinicians offer 1-hour parade and field clinics on nearby practice fields (available to all registered bands). Some of the clinicians serve on the judging panels for the day's events. The field show at the Waseca High School stadium features bands competing in three classes. A 10-15 minute fireworks display serves as the grand finale to the awards ceremony.

Interested bands can get more information and register online at Classification is determined by school enrollment, but special circumstances will be considered by the Classic committee for bands with less experience or personnel. Bands that register by August 15 are eligible for one of three bonus "band participation" prizes ranging from $250 to $500. See WasecaMarching for details.
