OktoberBierfest is an authentic Bavarian bier festival modelled on the Munich Oktoberfest. It was established in South Africa in 2011.
Housed in a 2,000 seater Bavarian bier hall adorned with authentic décor guests are served food and beer by a team of experienced frauleins to their respective 12 seater beer benches. An array of entertainment available – from a genuine Oompah band through to mainstream acts. A range of traditional Oktoberfest games are provided – strong man, balloon and darts, hammer and nails. All purchases at OktoberBierfest are made using “crowns”.
