Windhoek Oktoberfest beckons – Brewmasters to quench your thirst

The annual Windhoek Oktoberfest which is in its 59th edition is ready to host another eventful celebration of culture, and appreciation for diversity with an exciting programme this coming weekend on Friday 27, and Saturday, 28 October.

The Sport Klub Windhoek (SKW) will be the host to more than 5000 people that attend the event every year.

According to member of the Windhoek Oktoberfest organising committee, Christin Obst, this year’s event, as per the norm promises to deliver the rich cultural experience in fun and entertainment it has become known for

“We have a second band in store for our guests to the Windhoek event, apart from the world-class entertainment band – the Kirchdorfer – straight from the original Oktoberfest in Münich, Germany. Namibians and other guests can also look forward to the Windhoek Oktoberfest as we know it – the fun Bavarian traditional games; the special ‘Festbier’ brewed specifically for the Windhoek Oktoberfest, and the delicious Bavarian cuisine,” said Obst.

According to NBL those who bought tickets to the Windhoek event before 27 October also stand a chance to win a return flight for two from Windhoek to Münich, Germany courtesy of Eurowings on their 1st inaugural flight on 8 May 2018.

The winner of this prize will be announced at the opening of the event on Friday, 27 October. Tickets are still available for purchases online at or at any Pick n Pay (PnP) store.
