On Wednesday night, the Windhoek Oktoberfest was launched at the headquarters of one of its founding sponsors, Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL), a subsidiary of Ohlthaver & List (O&L).

Marking the 61th consecutive year that the Windhoek Oktoberfest is taking place, the jubilee attracted a total of 6 670 people in 2018; conversely this year it is preparing for a larger group and is slated to take place on 25 and 26 October with the Sport Klub Windhoek (SKW) remaining the site of the event.

On Saturday, the fest will host the perfect mix of traditional games for all ages and traditional Bavarian cuisine.

The world-class original Oktoberfest band from Munich, Germany, the Kirchdorfer band, will be present for entertainment and will also be joined by Jaegermeister Brass Cartel. The schuhplatter and a group of local dancers will also form part of the entertainment programme with additional highlights including the special-brewed Festbier, a beer specially brewed for the Windhoek Oktoberfest.

The fest will include a cashless payment system facilitated by Howler, a service provider with an outstanding track record in Namibia, inclusive of the annual Jazz festival and Hop Heads festival.

Nico Gericke, Windhoek Oktoberfest member, said this year's Oktoberfest will also see more food choices and the beer bar has been extended by 10 metres, whereas the two traditional bars with beer and spirits are perfected with two additional bars, including a beer trailer.Tickets to the Windhoek Oktoberfest are available at any Pick n Pay outlet countrywide as well as online through Webtickets at the cost of N$140.
