The Dixon Municipal Band has been a staple of Dixon summers and parades for over 85 years and is recognized as one of the best summer bands in the area.
People from surrounding communities have come for many years to enjoy the music along the riverfront and to see the band in the local parades.
The objective of the Dixon Municipal Band is to provide a venue that promotes the musical development of the musicians in the band (from high school to 99 years of age) and to provide a positive listening experience for members of the audience.
The Dixon Municipal Band is asking for your support by becoming a band sponsor. We offer several levels of sponsorship that are designed to not only support the band but to provide your business exposure on different advertising platforms.
The City of Dixon, like many governmental entities is experiencing financial tightening of the belt. One of the tough choices being made by the City is to no longer fund the Band as fully as in the past and they are currently considering not funding the band at all after the next two years.
Our goal is to become more self-sufficient in order to provide a fully programmed summer season without relying on City funding.
Your contribution will make a difference! Please consider helping the Dixon Municipal Band remain an important part of the Dixon community by becoming a sponsor of the Band. Checks may be mailed to:
