Sousa's March Mania

32 Marches. 4 Weeks. 1 Champion. 
The Mania Begins March 1, 2021

Each year “The President’s Own” hosts “Sousa’s March Mania,” a competition in which students and fans around the globe rally behind their favorite marches as they advance through a series of match-ups and onto the championship game! Each day two marches compete head-to-head, while votes for the favorite march determines which one advances to the next round. The 2021 edition of March Mania will be a dogfight like no other! Which marches will make it through the Sousa’s Sixteen, Enlisted Eight, and Fidelis Four to the final round? That’s for you to decide.


Participants in this event are encouraged to fill out a bracket before the competition begins to see if they can predict the  winner. Anyone with the winning march on their bracket, completed prior to the first match, will be crowned an honorary "March King!”
