Events Information

Governor Mifflin Music Association Events


Community Days - Typically held the week of the fourth of July on the grounds of Governor Mifflin High School. GMMA volunteers set up and run a food truck during all operating hours of the event. This is one of our largest fundraisers and a great way to show GMMA's support of Governor Mifflin and Shillington Communities. For this year's information, click here.


Corporate Sponsorship Drive - At the beginning of each school year we roll out our corporate sponsor drive. Corporate sponsors are given ad space in our event programs (Strike Up the Bands, Night of Jazz, and Pops Concert) for their donations. Students who obtain the donations have a portion of the donation placed in their student account.


Screpsi's Sandwiches - Coupons for a small sandwich, soda, and bag of chips are available for sale until the coupons are sold out.


GMMA Food Trucks - At each home football game, volunteers run the food truck and snow cone concessions.


GMMA Project Sales - Shirts, magnets, and lollypops are available for sale at each of the home football games.


Chicken BBQ - Held one or two times per year, volunteers run a chicken BBQ sale through Charlie's Chicken. Parents and students volunteer time to run this event.


Strike up the Bands - Typically the first Saturday in November, this event is one of the largest events and fundraisers for GMMA and has been held for over 40 years! The event typically draws over a dozen surrounding area marching bands for a full day of competition.


Craft fair/Holiday Bazaar - Typically held in late November or early December, this event is manned by student volunteers and includes dozens of local vendors and crafters.


Holiday Pie Sale - Sold at each of the school's holiday concerts.


Pops Concert - Typically held on the first Saturday in March, this event is a showcase of music programs from elementary through high school, with performances of pop culture music by each of the school's various performance groups.


Night of Jazz - Typically held in late winter or early spring, this concert is a showcase of both the middle school and high school jazz band ensembles and also serves as a competition and adjudication opportunity for several other area school jazz bands.
