NZCBA has been running a national festival since its inception in 1988. The objective has been to provide a quality playing opportunity for concert bands, provide feedback in the form of adjudication with an award of Bronze, Silver or Gold, and the chance for education and socialising to occur within the band community
It was with immense regret that we announced the cancellation of Festival 2020 Napier. The likelihood of bands being able to prepare for this event was significantly reduced, and without knowing how the future looked, we felt if best to let communities get on with the coming months without the pressure of Festival.
The Festival has run every year since 1988 and will happen again in 2021 in Napier July 30-Aug 1.
Our hosts, Napier Technical Memorial Band, very much want to see you all for Festival 2021!
