2023 Wurst Brass Festival Schedule
Though a schedule has not yet been determined, the Friday (June 16th) competition will likely begin
at 6:00p.m. (shotgun start) and conclude around 8:00 p.m. The potluck dinner in the Amana Festhalle Barn (4707 220th Trail, Amana, IA) will follow immediately at 8:30pm and concluding with awards, games, and raffle prize
Saturday June 17th will feature the entertainment brass band music festival inside the Festhalle Barn. The performance schedule will be determined when the number of attending bands is known. If there are 6 to 8 bands, each band may perform one 50-minute concert. If there are 5 or fewer bands in attendance, each attending band could perform two concerts throughout the day. The rotation of performances will be selected via a blind draw. The final concert performance of the day will be a massed band performance of a few marches (all bands combined). Ticket prices for Saturday’s music festival are TBD.
Saturday evening will wrap up with a catered cookout-style dinner for all bands in attendance in the Festhalle Barn. We will bring back the fun and shenanigans that the Eastern Iowa Brass Band was known for at the cookout: more door prize drawings, a legendary Top Ten list, and Rum Cakes!
