Pecanwood Oktoberfest- where history will be made!

It’s the last ever Pecanwood Oktoberfest Lifestyle Festival, and we want to celebrate it with you! We are going out with a bang this year, not only are we bringing you all the usual fun and festivities that the past Pecanwood Oktoberfests have brought, but we are also introducing the world’s longest Slip & Slide ride as we’ll attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records together, with a 650 metre Slip & Slide.

Come Saturday, October 20th from 10am, escape to the KZN Midlands’ Pecanwood Farm where Pecanwood Oktoberfest will be your perfect ‘get out of the city’ event, offering over 24 hours of entertainment.

Whether you are a sporting enthusiast, beer connoisseur, thrill seeker, foodie, or just want to enjoy some of South Africa’s top music acts live on stage – there is something for everyone, of all ages- this is the place to be.

The Last ever Pecanwood Oktoberfest Trail run is set to be one of the most exciting unexpected trail runs in the country. With a new and exciting 7km fun, easier run for the more relaxed runner to the more experienced seasoned “mountain goat” runner looking for a bit of a challenge, we have the 14km route as well. Both set to be sliding into history as the finish is down the Guinness book of world records slip & slide (optional). Tickets @ ROAG includes entry into the festival and camping.

In addition to the sporting experiences, there is also the exciting 4x4 show, where drivers will be putting on a unique showcase of ‘zuped’ up vehicles with top of the range Land Rover’s, courtesy of the PMB Land Rovers owners club.

This epic last edition of the Pecanwood Oktoberfest will also have a vast selection of beers from around the country, along with a Wine and Coffee Tasting tent featuring coffees from around the world.

Jack Daniels will be treating you to his famous Old No 7 whiskey as well the G&T Garden courtesy of Fitch and Leedes and Hendricks Gin.

For those not wanting to let the day end, festival goers have the option of bringing their own tent and camp for free.

Tickets, available at Webtickets at are just only R200 per person, and include your camping spot!
