Band Information Submission Document


The Central Indiana Track Show Association is an organization that governs the July marching band contests leading up to Band Day.

Parades and contests leading up to the annual Indiana State Fair marching band contest have been around for many years predating CITSA's official formation in 1983. They include locations such as the Vigo County Fair, Shelby County Fair, and Delaware County Fair. The Winchester contest began in 1974 and is the oldest CITSA contest that is still being held. Check out the resources further below for more information on the history of the CITSA contests.
