Old South Marching Contest



Being one of the oldest marching competitions in Georgia, Old South is a great environment for your students to perform! Using the single performance Olympic/Caption judging format, your program is bound to have a great final competition of the year with positive, constructive feedback. We hope to see you there!


Old South will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2019.

In the summer of 2018 a new Deluxe Athletics artificial turf system was installed in beautiful Drake Stadium!
