CSU Band Day

This Fall, the Colorado State Marching Band will host the second annual CSU Band Day with CSU Athletics. Join us for this special event at the CSU vs. Northern Colorado game on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2024!

This is an opportunity for high school students to participate in a college gameday experience with an on-field performance alongside the CSU Marching Band in front of thousands of Ram Fans in Canvas Stadium. No prior marching experience is required!  

The CSUMB is partnering with CSU Athletics to provide a full-day experience for you and your students that includes discounted tickets to the CSU vs. Northern Colorado game, a t-shirt for participants, a full rehearsal on the field in Canvas Stadium with the CSUMB, a front-row view of the Ram Walk Pep Rally and Parade, and, of course, a half-time performance with the Colorado State Marching Band.  We would love to host your entire band, or if you have individual students who would like to participate, they are more than welcome to!  Individual students with a parent or guardian or small groups with a designated chaperone or band director are also encouraged to participate.

Registration Details Coming Soon!
