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.
Since we cannot gather in large numbers in the Festhalle for our annual event, we are encouraging you to break out that lederhosen and dirndl and Volksfest in the Village! Explore Mt. Angel and support our small businesses as we Volksfest together, apart. Visit our website for more info - www.mtangelvolksfest.com
