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.
The Mt. Angel Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce our 2020 Junior First Citizen and Maureen Ernst Memorial scholarship winners. Each recipient receives an unrestricted $2,000 scholarship.
Our beautiful flower baskets return Sunday, June 7 and will remain up through September. This is an expensive project for the Chamber to purchase and water these flowers throughout the summer. Thank you so much to our generous sponsors who help us beautify our wonderful community!

4th of July Announcement
It is with great disappointment that we announce that our annual 4th of July Parade and Fireworks show for 2020 has been cancelled. This was not an easy decision. The 4th of July in Mt Angel is something we all look forward to every year. People from our community and communities around us come together to enjoy a small town holiday celebration. We would have loved nothing more than to bring you a little happiness and joy during this pandemic, however, for the safety of all, the Mt. Angel City Council concluded it was best to cancel.
The committee monitored guidance from the Governor’s office and Oregon Health Authority and worked with local officials to make plans and back up plans. Ultimately, it was the city’s decision for the safety of our community and visitors. Don’t despair! We’re saving the fireworks for next year and already starting to plan Mt. Angel's best 4th of July Celebration EVER for 2021!
Stay safe, have a healthy summer and mark your calendar now to join us for July 4, 2021!
