Meredith Willson is honored annually at the North Iowa Band Festival, which is celebrated as a tribute to his life and his love of music. He will be remembered throughout the world for his famous melodies, but in Mason City we remember our “Music Man” for instilling a rich musical tradition in our community.

The North Iowa Band Festival is the Chamber’s signature event, featuring a community parade and free musical entertainment. Projected attendance for the Memorial Day Weekend is more than 60,000 people.
