“It is a celebration of culture, which also celebrates our diversity in showcasing German roots but with our Namibian uniqueness, originality and authenticity,” he said.
With a cash sponsorship of N$150 000, Pupkewitz BMW joined forces with NBL and its founding partner, the Sportklub Windhoek (SKW), as a partner of the Windhoek Oktoberfest. This, according to Armand Barnard, the dealer principal, was inspired by the impressive growth of the event, its strong brand presence on the local entertainment scene and the respected cultural platform it has grown to become over the years.
“Pupkewitz BMW is proud to be associated with the Windhoek Oktoberfest. We will provide VIP parking to any BMW owner that will attend the Oktoberfest with 24/7 security. In addition, we will make available a chauffeur service to any BMW owner that would like to be driven home with his or her vehicle or with a Pupkewitz BMW,” he said.
This year the Windhoek Oktoberfest will also introduce for the first time since inception, a cashless system for transactions at the event. More on this is available on the Windhoek Oktoberfest website. In support of curbing rhino poaching, the Windhoek Oktoberfest has welcomed the Intelligence Support Against Poaching (ISAP) who will have a dedicated booth at the 2018 event for fundraising, in aid of keeping the ISAP operations alive.
A local cab app service, LEFA – powered by NBL - will also stand ready during the course of the 2018 Windhoek Oktoberfest to cater for those that will need transport to and from the event.
Tickets to the Windhoek Oktoberfest are available at any Pick n Pay outlets in the country, or can be purchased online through Webtickets.
