The Festival

The only Oktoberfest in Africa where we celebrate authentic German traditions, great atmosphere fueled by Namibian passion. The Oktoberfest Namibia event delivers a perfect combination of great German food, traditional games & activities, world-class entertainment and of course our excellent Namibian beer, brewed according to the German purity law, the Reinheitsgebot of 1516, ensuring a truly unique event.

It is very important to us to keep the original Oktoberfest tradition alive, which means the event is something special for the whole family.

We guarantee improved security and will not tolerate unruly behavior. We always encourage responsible drinking and a wide variety of non-alcoholic drinks are available as well as dedicated public transport services.


Typical to a traditional fair, there are a lot of games to ensure fun times, but the most prominent are “Stamm-sägen” (Log-Sawing); “Bierstemmen” (Beer-Lifting); “Hau den Lukas” (High Striker / Strong-Man / Ring the Bell); Nageln; Mechanical Bull-Riding, Archery, Speed Ball (Table Tennis), Soccer wall and many, many more...


Traditional German food include Schweine Haxn (Pork Knuckle); Schweinebraten (Pork Roast), Bretzn (Pretzels), Weisswurst, Bratwurst, Obatzda and much more...


We will have all the local Namibia Breweries beers available including a special Oktoberfest “Festbier” which is brewed specially for the Oktoberfest. NBL’s own Camelthorn Weissbier as well as Erdinger Weissbier will also be available for those with a love for Weizen!
