During Labor Day Weekend, Drum Corps Associates (DCA) Open Class corps compete to earn the title of DCA Open Class World Champion. The championships consist of 2 rounds (Prelims and Finals) held on 2 consecutive nights (the Saturday and Sunday nights of Labor Day weekend). All corps compete at Prelims, with the top 10 Open Class and top 4 Class A corps competing at Finals. The champion is determined by the overall high score in the Finals competition. There are also a number of caption awards (high brass, high percussion, high visual, etc.), though the process of determination for those awards has changed from year to year.[1]

Only ten corps have won at least one DCA title (including 2 ties):[2]

As of the conclusion of the 2015 competitive season, the Buccaneers, Bushwackers, Caballeros, Hurricanes, Cadets2, Minnesota Brass, Skyliners, and Sunrisers remained in active Open Class competition. The Brigadiers, Empire Statesmen, and Westshoremen were inactive.
