Colchester Continental Fife and Drum Corps
Fife & Drum Muster on the Green and Parade

CCFDC Performing at a muster

Colchester Continental Fife & Drum Corps will be hosting their 12th annual Muster on the Green, Saturday, July 22nd, 2017. Fife and drum corps from Connecticut and surrounding states will join the Colchester Continentals for an afternoon of martial music.

The event will kick off at noon with a short parade on Norwich Ave, beginning at the town hall and ending at the green. Opening ceremonies and the Muster will follow. At a fife & drum muster, each corps marches onto the "muster field," plays a selection of tunes, (usually a 5 minute medley or two) and marches off. When all corps have performed, it is custom for willing members from each corps to amass for "jollification" or the playing of common fife & drum tunes of yesteryear.


All are welcome!

Bring a lawn chair and enjoy the different corps attending this year's parade and muster.

The Colchester Historical Society's annual craft fair will be on the green as well.
