NABBA 2021 will be in Ft. Wayne, IN in a highly modified format because of the pandemic. Because of uncertain participation at this point, the contest is scheduled for a single day. There are the usual divisions, but no required test pieces this year. The modifications necessary to holding a contest in these circumstances are interesting, to say the least. Information so far is here:

2022-2024's contests will be held at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL. Dates are here: Hopefully, things will be back to normal by then and the contests can proceed as they have in the past.

There is a new edition of NABBA's publication The Brass Band Bridge out, the first one I believe since 2018. It has a more information about contest and venue changes, plus a lot of personnel info.

The NABBA website,, has posted that the 2021 contest has also been canceled. From the Championships page:

The NABBA Board of Directors has made the tough decision to cancel the 2021 Championships in April. It was our hope that the pandemic would not last as long as it has, though recent trends make it clear that having the event in April will not be possible. It was our wish that bands have something to look forward to as they maneuvered through these tough times, and we hope that bands are able to stay safe and get back to banding as soon as possible. We will be looking forward to putting together the 2022 Championships in Huntsville, and hope to see everyone there.
