2016 Shanghai Tourism Festival

The Govenaires Drum and Bugle Corps is proud to announce our invitation to the 2016 Shanghai Tourism Festival this coming September! This once-in-a-lifetime trip starts on Wednesday, September 7, and will feature various sight-seeing opportunities and performances. The main event will be the gigantic night parade on Saturday, September 10. The corps will return home on Wednesday, September 14.

Event organizers in Shanghai will coordinate and have offered to help cover some of the costs of housing, in-China travel, and some meals. The corps and its members will be responsible for the cost of travel visas, plane tickets, and additional items. Fundraising efforts are underway both locally and regionally. 

You can help us sponsor the corps members by donating here. Stay tuned for additional fundraising events.

The corps will be taking 47 members, including 17 brass, 11 percussion, 11 color guard, 8 AFS and support staff.  Members of the trip come mainly from the Govenaires 2016 show, and alumni, but also include members from neighboring DCA corps. If you have any questions about this trip, please contact Managing Director Kate Falvey at director@govenaires.org.
