One of the world’s most established and enjoyable celebrations, the famous Oktoberfest is taking place with organisation by Pepe Events, on November 3 at Kemer Golf & Country Club.

Offering a traditional German Oktoberfest menu including a variety of sausages, potato salad, spätzle, soups, brezel and apfelstrudel, the event promises to create a warm atmosphere where Turkish and German cultures are united.

Behind the 12-hour long event is a committee familiar with German and Turkish culture.

As for entertainment, you can expect a performance by Can Bonomo, university bands Deep Note and Namütenahi, as well as various dance performances and more. Furthermore, a number of leading brands will be introducing their products to festivalgoers.

Assistance will be provided from central locations such as the Sanayi Mahallesi Metro Exit, Beşiktaş and Taksim, to facilitate transportation and arrival on the day.

Tickets for the event sponsored by tv8 are available from Biletix.


What is Oktoberfest?

Held for the first time to celebrate the marriage of King Ludwig I, Oktoberfest is a festival that is still beloved today, and held for 16 days from late September to the first weekend in October in Munich’s Theresienwiese. People come from all over the world to celebrate in the giant tents set up on the grounds.
