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.
Masks & Sanitizer Available to Members
A big thank you to Chamber Treasurer Kristi Brackinreed for coordinating the order & pickup of masks and hand sanitizer for our chamber members from Marion County! Kristi was able to secure 5,000 masks and 100 bottles of sanitizer for our community. We have been able to help almost 30 businesses and so far 2,500 masks and 80 bottles of sanitizer have been distributed.

Hat pins, blinky buttons, tshirts and other Oktoberfest merchandise is now available for purchase at www.oktoberfest.org/store.

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 returned 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!
