DRAKENSBERG DEUTSCHES FEST (article first published : 2001-08-24)

If eating hot-off-the-grill German-style bratwurst, browsing among arts and crafts stalls, and oscillating on a dance floor in front of a live oom-pah band sounds like a good time, then Drakensberg Deutsches Fest is just for you!

The first Drakensberg Deutsches Fest kicks off at 16h00 on October 5 with a performance by the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir of Carmina Burana, the monumental work German composer Carl Orff. This is followed by a German evening of song, dance, traditional German food and “gemutlichkeit” with the Blaskapelle WunderBar, a KZN German band.

The spirited three-day celebration blends a traditional German festival with the charm and beauty of the Champagne Valley in the Central Drakensberg. It will showcase guest artists Quintett International under the leadership of Otto Kahl, Rina Hugo, the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir and the Blaskapelle WunderBar. On offer will be good food and entertainment plus hilarious contests like yodelling, pretzel eating, beer stein holding, wood sawing and, of course, the famous Chicken Dance!
