Tri-State Band Festival Now in its 68th year, Luverne's Tri-State Band Festival is the longest-running marching band festival in the region. The annual parade and field competition draws bands from Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota with more than 2,500 students participating.

The 2018 lineup features 23 participating bands, with 17 bands performing in the parade and 13 performing on the field. The morning parade travels along Main Street, with judging near the corner of Main and McKenzie. The afternoon field competition is held at the Luverne High School athletic field.

Luverne is located in the southwest corner of Minnesota, just 30 minutes east of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. One of Luverne's famous attractions is the Blue Mounds State Park which features beautiful campsites, prairie hiking trails, and the only state-owned herd of bison.
