About MEPA

The Mid East Performance Association (MEPA) is Ohio’s premier winter performance venue for winter guards, percussion, & winds ensembles throughout Ohio. With more than 100 member and guest units competing each weekend between the months of January and March, MEPA will have an impact on more than 2,000 performers and 8,000 spectators.

Above everything, MEPA is first an organization dedicated to the positive growth of our young performers. While these performers have various motives for joining one of our member units, MEPA believes that all competitions should serve as a vehicle to allow for growth in not just our young performers but also unit directors, designers, judges, parents, and audience members.

MEPA ensembles represent some of the best in the region, as well as the nation. Judging panels frequently consist of some of the top WGI adjudicators hailing from across the nation. MEPA also provides educational opportunities throughout the season including clinics, guest commentary, and consultation with MEPA representatives.

MEPA Championships are held at the Ervin J. Nutter Center on the campus of Wright State University. Championships are held in the same venue where a portion of WGI Championships are held.
