In 2020, Cadets Arts & Entertainment established itself as a leader in the drum corps community through the careful research, planning, and guidelines created by its Health & Wellness Committee. Comprised of several Cadets Alumni who are medical professionals, the committee created a framework for The Cadets to operate safely. The detailed plan was then shared with DCI to assist members corps amidst the ongoing pandemic.

As the COVID-19 Delta Variant continues to spread throughout the U.S., this effort continues into the off-season.

On October 9-10, Cadets Alumni and supporters nationwide plan to reunite in the corps’ birthplace of Garfield, NJ for Homecoming Weekend 2021 — a wonderful celebration of Cadets past, present, and future. It’s an event series a year in the making, and while we are thrilled to bring our Cadets Family together, protocols will be in place to ensure the safety of all in attendance. If you plan to attend Homecoming (and we hope you do!), please consider the following carefully and plan accordingly. We appreciate your participation, cooperation, and support, as we gather to celebrate this special year for our corps in the safest manner possible.
