WITH over 6 000 people last year, the Pecanwood Oktoberfest, on 10 and 11 October has been voted SA’s number one sport and lifestyle festival and KZN’s biggest beer fest.

It boasts a wide variety of beer and other beverages and food to suit any pallet, and will also feature some of South Africa’s top bands.

The event has an array of activities, including a 20km/40km MTB challenge, a 4x4 technical challenge, 7km/14km trail run, the WFO regional enduro round five and fun ride, to entertain all types of people.

The MTB, trail run, WFO and enduro fun ride courses have been designed and marked by top South African course designers that will impress with views of the Berg and Midmar valley.

All sports will be starting in the morning so you can finish in time to have your first beer thereafter. You can watch the 4x4 challenge and exhibition set out by Killarney and the Land Rovers Owners Club that is sure to be a nail-biting experience.

The artists featuring this year are Monark, The Kiffness, Lonehill estate, Majozi, veranda Panda, the kickstands, Ryan Stylz and Gus Brown. Other adult activities include beer pong, gladiator challenge, slip and slide, mechanical bull, paint ball shooting range, and more.

Your ticket into the festival includes camping. If you are not keen to camp, the Protea Hotel has partnered with us, making a room rate start from R317 a person. If you want to stay on site, Andy’s Tent Motel will also be available. See website for more details
