Help Blue Knights Win the 2023 Rocky Mountain Rivalry

Rocky Mountain Rivalry 2023

DENVER, CO – The Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps have headed out for their 2023 Drum Corps International summer tour, but they still need BK Nation’s help beat the Troopers and the Mandarins in the 9th edition of the Rocky Mountain Rivalry.

As the Blue Knights celebrate over 60 years of excellence, a new challenge has arisen for the friends and family of the Blue Knights. This year, the Blue Knights will go head-to-head with the Troopers and the Mandarins for the annual Rocky Mountain Rivalry to raise the most money supporting their respective drum corps.


Did you know? Member fees only pay for 41% of what it costs to run a summer tour? The other 59% comes from merchandise and event profits, performance fees, bingo and DONATIONS. Help the Blue Knights experience the summer of a lifetime. The Rocky Mountain Rivalry is our BIGGEST fundraiser of the summer, and we need your help to meet our goal!



Rocky Mountain Rivalry Returns: 
This 2-week long event will start on July 10th, and end on July 23rd. During this time, we will compete against each other in raising funds in support of our annual campaigns.

Aside from bragging rights, the drum corps that collects the most donations within that time period wins the 2023 Rocky Mountain Rivalry! The “losing” drum corps directors will be forced to wear the drum corps shirt or hat of the “winning” drum corps.  Help the Blue Knights March On in 2023!
