"Join us on May 16th for a day of fundraising and celebrating everything that makes the Boston Crusaders great. While we may not be “moving in” at Castleton this weekend, Crusader Nation will join together over a series of watch parties, exclusive content, and a live stream featuring special guests!

Without a summer tour, we are asking our family, friends, alumni, and fans to rise up to ensure a successful return to the field in 2021. This year, Giving Day will replace our important annual campaign and help close our $500,000 gap in lost summer revenue. Most importantly though, this is a participation drive. With a goal of 300 donors, this isn’t about an amount, it is about participation.

There is only ONE Boston Crusaders. Rise up and help us preserve this special organization."

On December 4, 2020, in News

The Boston Crusaders are fully committed to 2021 live education and programming!

While we continue to monitor the rapidly changing pandemic landscape, we are confident that we can gather live and get back to creating an educational experience for our membership, while providing thrilling entertainment for our fans in June of 2021. Throughout the last six months, we have worked closely with Castleton University to establish protocols that align with the State of Vermont safety standards and will align with the newly created minimum viable standards created by Drum Corps International’s Tour Reopening Task Force. Therefore, we are excited to announce that the Boston Crusaders will assemble in June of 2021 in Castleton, Vermont.

Prior to our summer move-in, we anticipate two live camps in April and May in San Antonio, TX. While we are eager to have these live camps, the safety of our membership, staff and volunteers is paramount. There is still uncertainty around the ability to travel. There are still restrictions in place on leaving and returning to college campuses and high school community settings. We need more time to finalize live camp plans and we remain flexible in our planning. But rest assured, the drum corps void is coming to an end. For family, friends, fans and alumni, you can expect a winter, spring, and summer of engagement from the BAC design team and membership. We will be sharing plans around musical content and programming early in 2021. The plan is to bring you along for the full ride. You will not be waiting until summer for your fill of BAC!

The summer will include a variety of New England based performances and member experiences, including the 8th annual Concert in the Park in Boston. We anticipate that our summer will culminate with the Drum Corps International Indianapolis events in August. As the next several months unfold, we will continue to work to add safe opportunities in between our New England appearances and Indianapolis. But with certainty – we announce live drum corps programming for 2021 with returning members and new cast members that are starting the audition process. And likewise – a fresh 2021 design concept is underway – and it will be quintessential “Boston”.

We support all of the DCI member corps and participating groups as they navigate this unique season based on a wide range of factors from geographic restrictions to safety and financial considerations. Given the very real challenges and restrictions, we know all the corps and drum corps fans will rally to support each other. This summer will be a celebration of our cherished activity. As we march on together – taking different approaches – we are united with a goal to create lifelong bonds, educate, and entertain. Ultimately, this bridge will lead to a 2022 season where full normal activities can return and thrive.
