Welcome to Mt. Angel, Oregon. This little town, founded in the late 1800s by German settlers, has an Old World flavor which is heightened by the many Bavarian style storefronts and the beautiful Benedictine Abbey and Monastery. Mt. Angel celebrates its German heritage each year during the Oktoberfest, one of Oregon's largest festivals. More than 300,000 people attend the four-day event, which has been held in Mt. Angel for more than 50 years.

First Citizen Announcement
Due to feedback from the community and the First Citizen committee, the Chamber of Commerce has made the difficult decision to not have the First Citizen Award Banquet in 2020 and to change this event from being an annual event to bi-annual or less frequent.
This change does not affect our annual Junior First Citizen Award and scholarship. This will still be done on an annual basis, with applications going out in the spring and a winner announced at the beginning of May.
Thank you to all our former First Citizens and other awardees. You make this community a better place and we are so thankful for you and everything you do! If you have suggestions or feedback for the frequency of the event or the event in general, please email email@example.com.
