The Original Oktoberfest in Pretoria

Raise your beer mugs because it’s time for the Original Oktoberfest (yeah, yeah, we know it’s not October!) at the Deutsche Internationale Schule (German International School) in Pretoria. Climb into your lederhosen and get ready to go German. 

What Is It?

The Oktoberfest at the German International School in Pretoria is South Africa’s original Oktoberfest, which makes it super special! Over 10 000 people celebrate in true German tradition under African skies at this very spot annually in September, and this year they’re celebrating their 42nd year of hospitality.

Enjoy the taste of Germany with eisbein, kassler, bockwurst and a cold draught. Hear the sounds of Germany with The Lasterbacher Oompah Band especially flown in for the occasion and celebrate in the company of traditionally dressed ladies in dirndl and gents in lederhosen.
