The Grande Prairie Marching Band performs annually as musical ambassadors for the City of Grande Prairie and Region. Sponsored by the City of Grande Prairie, our band is truly a community band. Our membership ranges in age from 12 to 75 and comes from all walks of life.


The Grande Prairie Marching Band runs from February through August and performs both in concert and on parade. In concert, the band performs twenty to thirty minutes of varied music; we play marches alongside pop songs.


You just never know what you're going to get.


Thank you to our 2021


Rehearsals Starting

Our new season is starting March 24, 2021.

To adhere to AHS guidelines, we are limiting our rehearsals to 10 members (including our band director). To accommodate this restriction, members must sign-up for a rehearsal timeslot. There will be two times each week; 6:45 pm - 7:45 pm and 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm. This allows enough time between the groups to sanitize and clear the space.

Members must wear masks at all times in the building and bell covers on their instruments. If you need a bell cover please contact Rebecca @ info@gpmarchingband.com at least 2 days prior to rehearsal.

The day of rehearsal members are required to complete a COVID-19 screening questionnaire. These are available digitally to avoid contact. Links have been sent by email and are available on this website on the members page or by clicking the following link.



Thank you to Elite Vac & Steam for their generous donation of a rehearsal space. 

Updates will be sent out by email, social media and posted here.


The most up-to-date information on the COVID-19 situation in Alberta can be found on alberta.ca.
