2017 Summer Schedule
We are excited to announce the Blue Devils 2017 DCI summer schedule. We kick off the season on Saturday June 17, 2017, at our annual Family Day followed by our very special Anniversary Weekend in Northern California the following weekend. The first event will feature a performance on Friday June 23, 2017, in Clovis at Buchanan High School. Saturday evening will feature the highly anticipated Anniversary Gala, followed by DCI West at Stanford Stadium on Sunday, June 25.
Many more events are planned throughout the weekend, so please continue to check our website, social media channels and emails for more information. Headquarters for this remarkable weekend will be the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Santa Clara, CA. Tickets for DCI West at Stanford and our 60th Anniversary Gala with the Santa Clara Vanguard will go on sale December 5, 2016. We would love for you to join us for this very special weekend, so please save the date and come celebrate. There is no better time then right now to start making your 2017 summer plans.
Following our epic anniversary weekend celebration, we will travel to Southern California with a Saturday evening show at the iconic Rose Bowl on July 1, 2017 and one of our favorite events on Sunday at Riverside Community College. From there, we will continue on to the Pacific Northwest. It has been nine years since our last visit to this region of the country, and we are excited to visit our friends, fans, and alumni. We will be performing with fellow System Blue artists, the Oregon Crusaders, at their home show in Hillsboro, OR, then at events in Auburn, WA, and Tri Cities, WA.
From the Northwest corner, we make our way to Denver for a show on July 15. After the weekend in Colorado we head to Texas with a stop in Broken Arrow, OK for a Tournament of Champions event. Following the annual Texas stint, we journey across the south to Nashville and Atlanta, then up the East Coast to Allentown. Finally, we arrive at the Drum Corps International World Championships in Indianapolis, IN!
With all of this excitement for the 2017 season, there is no better time to audition to become a Blue Devil. We had an incredible turnout for our brass auditions in Dallas last weekend, and we look forward to our auditions here in Northern and Southern California over the next three weekends. We can not wait to thrill audiences from coast to coast this summer.
Make sure you find and follow the Blue Devils on our social channels as we post great photos and videos of our banquet and clinic/audition over the Thanksgiving weekend.
