America's Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration Plymouth Massachusetts Performing Arts Consultants in exclusive partnership with America's Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration and Parade in Plymouth, Massachusetts, is excited to present the opportunity for your band to march in the city where Thanksgiving began!

Hundreds of thousands of people have traveled to historic Plymouth to experience a bounty of authentic Americana. The celebration of Thanksgiving becomes history-brought-to-life as Pilgrims, Native Americans, Soldiers, Patriots and Pioneers proudly climb out of the history books and onto the streets. The event, through Performing Arts Consultants, has recently added adjudication and awards to the parade.

Your band will perform for a crowd of thousands celebrating a true American holiday in the place where it all began almost 400 years ago. Treat your students to a tour of Plymouth and nearby Boston, a festive Thanksgiving dinner, an awards ceremony, and the Alumni Drum Corps Concert. The top-scoring parade band crowned "Grand Champion" will have the option to perform at the well-attended Alumni Drum Corps concert on Saturday night.

FAM trips are possible for directors to experience the parade a year prior. Visit usathanksgiving.com for more information about the Celebration and usafest.org for details about PAC's exclusive parade packages.

The 2018 parade will be aired live by Plymouth Area Community Television and streamed live on PACTV.org. It can also be viewed live through the HERE Boston streaming app. Visit hereboston.net for details on streaming services and devices.
