Oktoberfest celebrations at Sun City



Come and celebrate the famous Oktoberfest at this renowned resort

As the mayor of Munich taps the first barrel at the Schottenhamel Tent, crying “O’zapft is” (it’s open), the famous Oktoberfest celebration starts. Secondary festivals are set to be held at a multitude of venues across the globe, including Sun International’s flagship resort, Sun City.

Resort visitors can look forward to the annual Oktoberfest celebrations as well as sunny days, warm nights, magnificent shows and entertainment, not forgetting the delicious food and Bavarian beer.

Opening and entertaining throughout the Oktoberfest at The Crater, Sun Central, is the Rock of Ages band, which will rock the socks off visitors throughout the festivities with classic rock numbers and other jovial jingles. Sharing the stage with them is the Dixie Hillbillies – known to generate overwhelming responses from their audiences with their very unique folk-rock music and excellent lyrics, this band will have guests swaying along.

Included in the lineup is the Velvet Sounds Oompah band, which specialises in German carnival and beer feasts and features vocals, a trumpet, saxophone, tuba, trombone and congos. With their performances of original German songs, marches and waltzes from “Munchen” and “Sneewltzer” to “Beer Barrel”, “Schonemaid” and many more, feet shall be tapping along to their festive songs.


Attendees can get into the Bavarian spirit by suiting up in Trachten (traditional attire for the festival), with men sporting the suspendered leather trouser “lederhosen” and women the traditional “Bavarian Dirndl”.
