Each year the historic village of Hahndorf really does sound like the Hills are alive with the sound of music.

The event, now in its twelfth year, is the major ‘entertainment’ contest for community bands on the South Australian band calendar and has now made its mark as a regular feature of the cultural calendar in the Adelaide Hills town.

The Hahndorf Band Festival will be held on Saturday 11 May in the beautiful Hahndorf Pioneer Memorial Gardens, located right on Main Street.

On-stage entertainment will begin at 10.30am and will feature the Hahndorf Town Band with at least six other bands from around the state, each performing a 30-minute entertainment programme designed to wow the audience and impress the adjudicator.

Entrance is free, and the public can enjoy local live community music, and soak up the festival atmosphere in the park, with food, drink and market stalls, all within Hahndorf’s popular main street precinct.

This event brings together the wonderful talents of our state’s community musicians, soloists, and conductors for what is always a most memorable and enjoyable day of music, entertainment and camaraderie. What a great day to spend in Hahndorf!
