The 57th annual Windhoek Oktoberfest was officially launched on Wednesday, 23 September 2015. Arguably the best Oktoberfest in Africa, this much anticipated event on the Namibian entertainment calendar will for the first time in its history be hosted in Cape Town, South Africa on the 23rd and 24th October 2015.
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.
