Friendship Cup

The Friendship Cup Scholastic Marching Band Competition is dedicated to furthering the education and growth of young people through the participation in performance events for programs of all levels to achieve and grow.

Founded over 10 years ago, the Friendship Cup serves as a competitive circuit for scholastic marching band programs in the Rocky Mountain Region. Produced by Ascend Performing Arts, the Friendship Cup competitions allow bands to compete with other similarly-sized units, not based on school classification.
