The River City Band Festival is held on the second Saturday in October.

Now in its thirteenth year, the festival offers both street and field competitions, with trophies and prizes being awarded.

Street Competition on Saturday morning takes bands down Main Street past three announcing stands and hundreds of people lining the street.

The afternoon Field Competition is at Don Giese Field, Chamberlain High School.

Interspersed in the parade are vintage vehicles owned and driven by area residents.

Each band in the Street Competition is recognized with a banner carried by area school children.

The whole town turns out to make this an enjoyable experience for the bands and spectators alike!

Lunch is available for purchase at the high school by band members and their support staff.  A concession stand is open during the field competition. Restaurants are also open along Main Street.
