Description
Accordion band posing with their instruments at the Waterloo Band Festival. They are in costume and girl in front is holding a guitar. Accordion entries became so numerous (400 one year) at the Waterloo Band Festivals that they had to be moved from Waterloo Park to the Waterloo Band camp Bandberg at Bamberg northwest of Waterloo.
Notes
The Waterloo Band Festival was organized by Charles F. Thiele in 1932 in celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the Waterloo Musical Society. The festival became an annual event at Waterloo Park from 1932 to 1940 and again from 1946 to 1958, known as Canada's premiere band festival. At times 70 bands from Ontario, Quebec, Wisconsin, Michigan, and (one year) Kamloops, BC, appeared in concerts and parades, and over the years more than 1000 contestants participated in 100 instrumental competitions.
