| |

govenaires_100x100The Govenaires Drum and Bugle Corps is proud to announce our invitation to the 2016 Shanghai Tourism Festival this coming September!

This once-in-a-lifetime trip starts on Wednesday, September 7, and will feature various sight-seeing opportunities and performances. The main event will be the gigantic night parade on Saturday, September 10. The corps will return home on Wednesday, September 14.

Event organizers in Shanghai will cover all housing, in-China travel, and some meals. Costs for travel visas, plane tickets, and additional items are being worked on. The goal is to cover as much as possible through grants and fundraising.

You can help us cover costs by going to and clicking “Donate to the Govenaires” on the front page. Stay tuned for additional fundraising events.

This opportunity is open to all 2016 members of the corps, but alumni are also invited to participate. If you have any questions about this trip, please contact Managing Director Kate Falvey at director [at] govenaires [dot] org.
