After careful consideration of the COVID-19 situation and discussions with the DHB and Ministry of Health we have decided to postpone Repco Beach Hop 20 until 25-29th November 2020. We hope that the virus pandemic will be more controlled over the next 8 months so we can celebrate our 20th year of this wonderful event. More details for entrants about how this will work will follow in due course, so please don’t throw away your entry packs in the meantime. We plan to roll everything over to these new dates including the prize vehicles, Ford Kiwi Rock’n’Roll Legends concert etc.

Beach Hop

The sun is shining and it is a stunning day here in Whangamata today!

We've received a few enquiries asking if Repco Beach Hop 20 will still go ahead 25-29th November....

Like everyone, we are waiting to see what decisions will be made however we are confident that New Zealand will return to Level 1 before the rescheduled event.

If our area is in Level 1 at the time then we expect to proceed. We will be COVID aware following the major event protocols set by the Ministry of Health at the time. Public safety is very important to us.

We are all set and ready to roll for November. Thanks to a grant from the Domestic Events Fund we are able to reprint the Festival Programme in a different colour, with an updated schedule as we will be making a few small changes for the November event. So if you already have a BROWN Repco Beach Hop 20 Programme, then please bring it to the Festival and we will exchange it for a new updated Programme.

The entrant decals and swing tags, concert tickets etc we sent out in March will be valid for the November event - please don't lose them.

If you entered a vehicle for the March 2020 event and can't make it in November, then please return your entrant pack to us with a cover note. You can either transfer your entry to Repco Beach Hop 21 OR apply for a refund. Just tell us what you'd like to do. Our postal address is Beach Hop, PO Box 120, Whangamata 3620.

We had a great response to our online store at Repco during Level 3 & 4 and sold out of a few T shirt designs and sizes. We will be producing more stock for the November event so hopefully you won't miss out.

Have fun!
