Great night at the HopFest

Lining up for the costume judging.
A LARGE crowd attended the seventh annual Hopfest hosted by the Derwent Valley Concert Band in the New Norfolk War Memorial Hall on April 18.

The theme was “Beer, Bratwurst and Brass” in a German Oktoberfest setting. Included was a three course meal co-ordinated by Maree Rieper and her team of volunteers, while a band made up of players from the DVCB kept everyone’s feet tapping and dancing to popular German tunes.

The Hopfest is the concert band's main fundraising event each year. The proceeds from this year’s event will help to purchase additional instruments and equipment for the Development/Training Band. The band thanks all donors and supporters.
