Be part of history

HOLD on to your hats and gear up for the last ever Pecanwood Oktoberfest Lifestyle Festival.

We are going out with a bang this year and have partnered with One Degree Group. We are bringing you the world’s longest Slip & Slide as we attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records.

Come Saturday, October 20 from 10 am, 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 under the theme #worldrecordslip&slide.

With so much on offer, you can now be apart of this historic festival where we attempt to break the official record of a 630-meter slip and slide.

So, 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 – this is the place to be.

In addition to the sporting experiences, such as the trail run, volleyball and action soccer, 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.

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.

Having boasted over 6 000 people last year, be sure to join us this last year as we celebrate over eight years of the best times had and set a new world record.

Tickets, available at Webtickets, are only R200 per person, include camping and your chance to be part of history with this record-breaking slide.
