Pecanwood Oktoberfest

We are excited to announce the return of Pecanwood Oktoberfest – South Africa’s most versatile Sport and Lifestyle festival. This year sees all the fun and entertainment you’ve come to expect, with the addition of new and exciting attractions.

Escape to the KZN Midlands for Pecanwood Oktoberfest between 29 – 30 October for the perfect ‘get out of the city’ event, situated only one hour from Durban and 15 minutes from Pietermaritzburg. This year, the theme of the festival is the exhilarating #ChooseYourAdventure – built around selecting your own personal adventure at the festival, whether you are a sporting enthusiast, beer connoisseur, thrill seeker or just want to enjoy some of South Africa’s top music acts live on stage. There is truly an experience to suit all tastes.

With over 6 000 people last year, Pecanwood Oktoberfest was voted SA’s Number One Sport & Lifestyle festival and KZN’s biggest beer fest.
There are a wide array of outdoor activities on offer, featuring some extreme and popular sports. These include:

20/40 MTB
7/14 KM trail run
4×4 technical challenge,
Enduro X
And much more…

In keeping with the title of KZN’s biggest beer fest, this year Pecanwood Oktoberfest boasts a vast selection of beers from around the country, along with our Wine and Coffee Tasting Tent featuring coffees from around the world. #ChooseYourAdventure continues with fans choosing which of SA’s top bands they’d like to see perform live at the festival. This year’s acts, as voted by you, include Arno Carstens, Short Straw, Crash Car Burn, Gus Brown, Chico Muyo, Ryan Stylz, Rowan Stuart, Gavin Ferguson, Mathew Gardiner and many more. This will be Short Straws last performance in KZN for 2016.
