First stop for Oktoberfest – Cape Town
In aim of bringing the purity, premium experience to our people in South Africa, Namibia Breweries Limited and host of the Windhoek Oktoberfest decided to include its SA clientele in the 57th annual Oktoberfest celebrations, with the aim of making it an annual activity. Arguably the best Oktoberfest in Africa, the event will be hosted in Cape Town at the Hillcrest Quary in Durbanville on the 23 and 24 October.
Norbert Wurm, member of the Windhoek Oktoberfest organizing committee: “We hope Cape Town is geared up and ready to enjoy an unforgettable time at the Windhoek Oktoberfest celebrated by more than 6 million people across the globe, and regarded as the one of the largest cultural festivals. This family event certainly promises great fun and memories to last.”
Over the years, the Windhoek Oktoberfest has seen tremendous growth in popularity with a steady rise in the number of visitors. NBL does not only make available excellent Namibian beer brewed according to the German purity law, the Reinheitsgebot of 1516, but visitors to the Windhoek Oktoberfest in Cape Town can also expect a ‘Festbier’ specially brewed for the event.
NBL’s Camelthorn Weissbier and the Erdinger Weissbier will also be available at the fest. Great German food, traditional games and activities, as well as world-class entertainment will add to the excitement that awaits Windhoek Oktoberfest supporters.
This will include the popular world-class Oktoberfest band, the Kirchdorfer – straight from the original Oktoberfest in Münich, where they’ve been performing in the Hacker-Festzelt, every year since 1994. They bring the true Oktoberfest spirit to all corners of the globe.
Traditional Bavarian games such as the ever-popular mechanical bull-riding, archery, log-sawing and beer-lifting for the ladies also promises to bring exciting entertainment to the participants.
