WINDHOEK, OCT. 25 – Preparation for the 60th annual Windhoek Oktoberfest is well underway, and ready to host guests from all corners of the country, and the globe. “Annually the Windhoek Oktoberfest hosts close to 5000 festival goers – and the same can be expected for this year”, says Chairman of the Windhoek Oktoberfest committee, Norbert Wurm.
Tents are already up and the set-up is in strong progress at the Sport Klub Windhoek (SKW) – host of the annual Windhoek Oktoberfest. “SKW is super-excited for this year’s event!”, says SKW Chairman, Vincent Molzahn. According to Molzahn, Windhoek Oktoberfest goers can expect a change in the lay-out for 2018.
Molzahn: “As always, we are very excited to host the 2018 Windhoek Oktoberfest, and even more excited that we are celebrating the 60th anniversary of this outstanding cultural festival in the country. There will definitely be a change in the layout of the venue this year. We deemed this necessary after 7 years since the last time we changed the layout. It is time for something different again.”
Molzahn stressed that the annual Windhoek Oktoberfest has always been one of the highlights on the SKW calendar, and that they intend to remain committed to making sure that festival goers have the best time possible.
The Oktoberfest hosts a perfect mix of traditional games for all ages, accompanied by good traditional Bavarian cuisine and world class entertainment from the original Oktoberfest band from Munich, Germany, the Kirchdorfer band, which will this year also share the stage with Die Broers.
