Welcome to Mt. Angel, Oregon.

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.

Legion Hall Presents Gus the Gobbler
Gus the Gobbler here.
This story is a hoot! Seventy-five years ago a young couple
entered the Legion Hall for a fun filled evening of Bingo and cards.
The wife was playing Bingo with her eye on a prize of a rabbit
cookie jar. Her husband was downstairs playing cards.
As the evening moved on she was experiencing mild labor pains, she
was pregnant with their first child. She wouldn’t leave without the rabbit!
BINGO, she won the cookie jar and delivered a baby girl later that
night. When the baby was old enough to get around, she broke
that jar! Just think she could have been the first “Mt Angel Turkey
