The first weekend of October was started on a high note. Kampala partygoers were treated yet again to another exciting edition of German cultural activities and merriment at Oktoberfest Kampala on Saturday, 5th October 2019. Revelers flocked the Uganda Museum Grounds over the weekend for the fourth edition of the action-packed beer and food festival powered by Tusker Lite.
The annual event that is a rendition of the world’s largest beer and food festival, a German inspired event had a massive turn out of lively guests buzzing in excitement at the day’s line-up of beer and food games and activities organised under My Food Network.
It was the best of both worlds as revelers enjoyed a mix of German and Ugandan cultures paraded throughout the event through fashion showcases, music and most importantly food with the Guest of Honor, Dr. Albrecht Conze, German Ambassador applauding the crowd for their fiery enthusiasm.
“Today, we have all experienced exciting portions of the German and Ugandan culture, the festivities and celebrations have made me nostalgic but above all, it has been an amazing Oktoberfest,” said Dr. Conze.
Enthusiastic drinkers could be seen downing the Tusker Lite beer filled pitchers as they participated games like the beer straw challenge, beer pong, beer glass hoisting challenge and food eating competitions with their eyes on the cash and giveaway prizes.
The evening got even better with the breathtaking performances from Qwela band and the Karma Queen herself, Sheebah Karungi who had fans singing along to songs like, ‘Wankona’, ‘Nkwatako’ ‘Silwana’ and ‘sweet sensation’ among others throughout her performance. Qwela also outdid themselves as well with their angelic voices that left many in awe of the band’s talent.
It was indeed an unforgettable night where cultures merged and a reflection of the friendship and cultural partnerships between Germany and Uganda were successfully showcased.
