WGI 2020 Logo There WILL be a 2021 WGI Season ... all performances will be virtual!

The 2021 WGI Virtual Season for Color Guard, Percussion and Winds kicks off February 20 and runs every weekend through the Finals weekend on April 17-18. All performance videos are hosted for online viewing on FloMarching.com.

The 2021 WGI Virtual Season offers opportunities in Solo, Small Ensemble, Group Competitive, Group Non-Competitive, and eShowcase. As of early February, more than 100 percussion and winds groups are already registered to participate. Based on ratings from performances at prelims events in February and March, units in the competitive class will advance to semi-finals and ultimately to finals in April.


Following a 2021 virtual season, the hope is that WGI Championships will return as usual in 2022 as an in-person contest in Dayton, Ohio.

The WGI Percussion and Winds World Championships is the premier showcase for indoor percussion units and wind ensembles. The event is produced by WGI Sport of the Arts which also produces the WGI Color Guard World Championships on a separate weekend. The WGI Championships typically draw 15,000 participants over two weekends, including more than 350 color guards and 250 percussion ensembles from 40 states and 5 countries.

WGI is focused on education and provides curriculum materials for classes in equipment, movement and design. WGI also provides a full educational program for instructors and judges. The organization promotes higher education by annually awarding $20,000 in academic scholarships to student performers. Winter guard and indoor percussion are the fastest growing of the marching arts, and high school marching bands benefit from the skills developed in these winter programs.
