2022 Vanguard Homecoming Weekend

Are you ready for the biggest celebration of the summer? VMAPA invites you to join us for the 2022 Vanguard Homecoming Weekend! This two-day celebration will take place from Saturday, July 9th to Sunday, July 10th, and will mark the return of some of our favorite Vanguard traditions, as well as a few exciting additions, including a reimagined family day, our fabulous 55th Anniversary Emerald Gala, and of course DCI West! 

VMAPA welcomes back alumni, friends, fans, and community supporters to reconnect with the Vanguard family and celebrate our return to the field. After two long years apart, what better way to spend your weekend than in the middle of the action? Mark your calendars and get ready to take the next step in Vanguard history together!
