Update 4/26/2022: Our Stadium site in Edinboro is now secured!  Ticket information will be posted soon!


Lake Erie Fanfare is proud to announce that LIVE Drum Corps will be returning to our area in 2022.

The show will be on Monday, August 8th, 2022 at Sox Harrison Stadium in Edinboro, PA.

Ticket information will be announced soon.


Current Lineup (subject to change):

  • The Academy - Tempe, AZ
  • Blue Stars - La Crosse, WI
  • Crossmen - San Antonio, TX
  • Genesis - Austin, TX
  • Madison Scouts - Madison, WI
  • Seattle Cascades - Seattle, WA

With the unprecedented World Events relative to the COVID 19 virus, Drum Corps International and all its member corps voted recently to cease plans for this summer's annual Tour. With an eye to the health of all the members and spectators, this seemed the most prudent course of action to take.

Even though we as a show sponsor have no formal part in this decision, Lake Erie Fanfare agrees with this plan and is looking forward to 2021 in hopes of a return to our normal summer of drum corps! In the meantime, we have left all our deposit amounts stand with DCI in order to help in the crisis. The only other item left to consider is our patrons who have already bought tickets for this season's (2020) show.

We would like to propose that the ticket payments can simply be left with us for NEXT year's (2021) Fanfare show and we will then send your tickets when we resume next summer. If this is not acceptable, please end us an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will make arrangements to refund your ticket money.

While we are sad to lose this upcoming season, we are hopeful that this crisis will pass and we will be back to our normal presentation of the country's best youth musical talents! Again, please email or call us with any questions or concerns. And THANK YOU for your continued support of the marching musical arts!
