North Iowa Band Festival Historynibf

It's difficult to imagine the North Iowa Band Festival consisting of just six marching bands entertaining folks on the streets of Mason City in 1928.  Isn't amazing to know how much Meredith Willson truly believed in the musical future of Mason City?  It is no wonder that William J. Petersen, writing about plans for the 25th festival in 1963, said, "Everyone was looking forward to the 25th. And there was no doubt in anyone's mind that there would be a 30th, a 40th and a 50th. For music is an important part of the very existence of Mason City."

Read about the North Iowa Band Festival's history before the big weekend May 25-29, 2017.
