A Wrap-Up of the 2022 Event

The City of McKinney, McKinney ISD, and Marching Music Made in McKinney hosted its first Drum Corps International marching band exhibition and competition events during the Texas leg of the 50th Annual Drum Corps International (DCI) Tour in July 2022. The event took place July 26 at the McKinney ISD Stadium & Community Event Center at 4201 Hardin Blvd. A drumline event featuring the percussion battery from the World Class corps, Santa Clara Vanguard, took place at TUPPS Brewery the night before (on July 25). Fans enjoyed both sell-out events - 325 attendees at TUPPS, and 5,000 at the stadium for the competition on what was DCI's last night of their 2022 Texas Tour.  

We look forward to having the DCI corps and their crews and staff members, fans, family, and more back in McKinney next July for even more great marching music events!
