the Rose Parade presented by Honda

The Saluting America’s Band Directors project is a historic, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to march in the 2021 Rose Parade in Pasadena, California! The Tournament of Roses has approved our entry of a spectacular animated float which will lead an unprecedented marching band of band directors from across the country as we recognize and salute the exceptional instruction, character development and inspiration provided by music educators everywhere.

Marching in the Rose Parade will create a lifetime memory.
