Following some unfortunate problems for Drum Corps International in 2018 they have revamped their policies to focus on the safety of participants. Dan Acheson, Drum Corps International CEO, stated that “With a renewed focus on safety, health, and wellness initiatives throughout 2019, we look forward to presenting this year’s tour that incorporates intervals of rest for performers, staff, drivers and volunteers at various times for each corps throughout the summer”.
These ‘intervals of rest’ mean tour dates have been scheduled around the Fourth of July as follows:
June 29,2019 Lawrence, MA
July 1, 2019 Lynn, MA
July 2, 2019 Clifton, NJ
July 6, 2019 Orlando, FL
Unfortunately, Drum Corps International will NOT be visiting Rhode Island in 2019 after more than 25 years! The Bristol Fourth of July Committee is disappointed about this decision but we are hopeful for a return in 2020.
