Our Opening Event Sponsors were very popular! All local businesses supporting the HSB: Hahndorf Hill Winery's delicious White Mischief and Compatriots wines were supplied, as were the very popular XPA Session Ale provided by Prancing Pony Brewery. Beerenberg Farms provided strawberries, Udder Delights donated rounds of tasty Heysen Blue cheese, Klose's Supermarkets donated general items for the exhibition.

A complete list of our 2019 HSB sponsors is located on the 2019 exhibition page. We gratefully appreciate the Opening Event support provided by Mount Barker District Council, and the great traffic and parking warden volunteers from the Hahndorf Lions Club.

The Committee also thanks the volunteers who made the 2019 HSB Opening such a success.
