The programme:

Fest Beer:

The opening of the keg will take place on Friday night. With the exclamation “O`zapft is!” (“It`s tapped!”), the first beer is handed to the mayor or representative of the city, who then declares the Windhoek Oktoberfest in Cape Town officially open.  This is a special “Festbier” available which is brewed specially for the Oktoberfest by braumeister Christian Müller.  This authentic German beer is brewed according to the Reinheitsgebot, the 1516 Bavarian Purity Law. 

The Kirchdorfer band will be performing:

They have been the official band in the “Hacker-Festzelt” at the Octoberfest in Munich since 1994 and will be flying in straight from there to perform at the Windhoek Oktoberfest in Cape Town. Catch them live at Windhoek Oktoberfest on the Friday all night, Saturday 12h15, 13h45, 20h00 and 22h30 and on Sunday 15h30 and 16h45. There will also be further live entertainment by bands and DJ`s throughout the weekend.

Schuhplattler dancers:

Schuhplattler is a traditional style of folk dance. In this dance, the performers stomp, clap and strike the soles of their shoes (Schuhe), thighs and knees with their hands held flat (platt).  

Traditional Food:

It’s hard to compete with hearty melt-in-your-mouth German dishes which complement your beer perfectly.  Hartlief, well known for its comprehensive variety of high quality meats will be serving up traditional specialities bringing the taste of the Munich Festival right to your door-step.  Look forward to traditional Eisbein, Bratwurst mit Sauerkraut und Senf and roast chicken to mention a few.  

Activities on the Saturday:

Typical to a traditional fair, there will also be lots of games including “Stamm-sägen” (Log-Sawing), “Bierstemmen” (Beer-Lifting), “Hau den Lukas” (High Striker), Nageln, Beer Pong and Catty shooting.

Activities on the Sunday:

As is tradition in Germany Sunday is family day and we are following that practice.  We will have plenty of entertainment for Mom’s, Dad’s and children.  Sunday will include a fair ground offering a variety of fun rides, jumping castles, face painting and games.  The Kehraus (farewell celebration) will be announced with the ringing of a bell to bring the event to an end after a fun-filled day.
