About the SMG

Come celebrate with us! For the 2020 season, we will be hosting seven outstanding Corps.  Be sure to get your tickets early this year to ensure you will be a part of this event.

 Drum Corps International exists to showcase the very best in musical arts and pageantry. Members of the corps spend hours each day to achieve perfection and participate in a tour of the United States, culminating in the 2020 DCI World Championships which will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana on August 8.

This event is the primary fundraiser for the Pride of Salem Marching Band. Profits from sponsorship, advertising, donations and show tickets are used to fund the many activities of the Salem High School Band programs. This funding helps to defray costs of travel and materials.

Without your continued assistance and support, the “Pride of Salem” could not have achieved their unique accomplishments. Though the majority of the raised funds are used to support the Pride of Salem Marching Band, we do supply support to the band programs of the schools that house our participating corps.
