The Red Cedar Festival of Community Bands (RCF), hosted by the Meridian Community Band (MCB), is a one-day event in which each participating band performs a brief, public concert followed by an educational post-concert clinic.

The clinics are directed by four university-level conductors who provide insight and techniques for improving musicianship. Visiting artists present instrumental master classes for featured instruments.

Audiences enjoy the presentation of a wide variety of traditional and contemporary band literature. The festival combines performance opportunities, learning experiences for musicians, and a forum for networking with other bands from across the state.
