Oktoberfest held its first VIP Launch ahead of the official fest on 1st October at Jahazi Pier.
The sponsors of Oktoberfest Kampala 2022 and other VIPs hosted a meet and mingle cocktail event on 24th September 2022.

Guests at the cocktail enjoyed beer from Nile Breweries, wine from Karuka Agencies, soda and water from Pepsi, with the cocktail menu complemented by both Sheraton Kampala and Ranchers Finest.
All this was set against the plush backdrop of the Sheraton Hotel Poolside, with some fairy lights offering a surreal glam, with some sumptuous live music entertainment.
The event, which started at 5 PM and rolled leisurely into the evening, was graced by the German Ambassador to Uganda, His Excellency Matthias Schauer as well as the Belgian Ambassador to Uganda, His Excellency Rudi Veestraeten.
