The Michigan Competing Band Association (MCBA) is a sanctioning body for marching band field contests in the state of Michigan, established in 1974.

Previous championships were held at the Plymouth-Canton Educational Park Varsity Stadium in Canton, Michigan, Rynearson Stadium at Eastern Michigan University, and at the Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan. They are currently held at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. Prior to the 1992-93 school year, MCBA was known as the Michigan Competing Band Director's Association, or MCBDA.
