Pupkewitz BMW is one of the main sponsors of the Windhoek Oktoberfest and they are excited to
be part of the festivities. Armand Barnard, dealer principal at Pupkewitz BMW, said they will take
special care of all BMW clients who attend the event. “BMW will bring our latest range of vehicles to
you as our customer to ensure that you are chauffeured around safely whilst enjoying the hospitality
of NBL at the Oktoberfest,” Barnard said.
Apart from beautiful German vehicles, guests can expect Bavarian cuisine and the specially made
Festbier. The Kirchdorfer band and the Jaegermeister Band are the main entertainment who will be
joined by the Schuhplattler and Die Broers, as well as local dancers.
Project leader of the Windhoek Oktoberfest, Daniel Keulder, said this year will bring about changes
in terms in catering, as it will be a bigger festival. “We have seen significant growth in international
guests and want to make sure that we are in a position to keep things running smoothly throughout,
hence a few adjustments to accommodate the bigger capacity crowd,” Keulder said.
Some of the changes include a cashless payment system by Howler, an extended beer bar, two
traditional beer bars, two additional bars and a beer trailer.
Other sponsors include Lufthansa in cooperation with Eurowings while the SKW remains the
premises for the event.
