One of the longest standing, best-loved folk festivals in the Northwest, celebrates its 49th anniversary from September 11 through September 14, 2014. The Mount Angel Oktoberfest began as a traditional fall festival to celebrate the bounty of the earth and the goodness of creation.

A Great Bavarian style party as well as a huge fundraiser, the Oktoberfest is still going strong, carrying with it the quality, warmth and fun of a community effort unparalleled in the Northwest. Oktoberfest kicks off with a traditional German Webertanz (May pole dance) performed by Mount Angel school children at noon each day.



  • Friday and Saturday night street dances
  • Biergarten – Alpine Rock and upbeat music
  • Weingarten – with musicians from Germany, Canada, and Mt. Angel
  • Alpinegarten – interactive and open for kids at all times
  • concerts in St. Mary Parish Church,
  • all-free kindergarten – with magicians, jugglers, pony rides, petting farm and much more

The “Original Donaumusikanten,” a world class Bavarian band, is flying directly from Germany and sponsored by Lufthansa, the official airline of Oktoberfest. The German band plays daily in the Weingarten. The Oktoberfest Weingarten captures the ambiance of the great wine festivals along the Rhine River. Select wines from Germany and the Northwest, Warsteiner German beers and Budweiser. In addition to the Donaumusikanten, you will meet the Z Musikmakers from Mount Angel, and the Gordanairs European Musik from Canada.

The Alpinegarten is open to families all day, and features lively interactive entertainment reminiscent of a Bavarian village folkfest. Entertainment in the Alpinegarten features the Gruber Family Band and the Saltzburger Echo Band, This versatile band brings the Alps to Mount Angel, playing “Old World” folk and traditional music from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. They recently returned from a successful European tour. They amaze audiences with their 12-foot alpenhorns, Swiss cowbells and harmony yodeling.

The Alpinegarten features delicious beers and refreshing wines. The McMinnville Knights of Columbus operate the Gourmet Coffee Shoppe and Deli in the Alpinegarten with the help of Allann Bros Coffee Company.
The Biergarten, located in the Mount Angel’s Festhalle, features Die Schlauberger, America’s #1 German Band with their mix of Alpine Rock. The Biergarten is famous for lots of great dancing and singing, good food and of course beer.

The Prostgarten is a quiet place to relax while strolling through the streets, and listen to accoustic accordion. Grab a sausage and kraut or other festival favorite from a food booth; then make your way to the Prostgarten and select a Warsteiner beer or German Wine imported by Kastle Hill to accompany your meal.

The Oktoberfest Kindergarten is filled with delightful free entertainment for young and old alike. It features 4-H barnyard, pony rings, interactive bouncing amusements, climbing walls and other physical activities. The Kindergarten Pavilion presents magicians, jugglers and kid oriented entertainment. The real thriller in the Kindergarten is the famous Weiner Dog Race. This is a great place to spend some quality time with the kids.

The Fruchtsauele is a traditional harvest monument expressing our thanks to the Creator for the bounty of the harvest. It is constructed of seeds, fresh fruits, nuts and vegetables mostly grown in and about the village. It is located in the center of the festival area and displays the annual festival theme. It is a great place to meet and gather up your family and friends.
The festival offers golf, track and volleyball tournaments, a 10-kilometer fun run and 5-kilometer run/walk. The fun begins on Saturday at 9 AM and starts at Humpert Park. The Oregon Marathon will start and end at Oktoberfest this year, be ready to run on Saturday, September 13.

The Cruz-n Car Show on Saturday and Sunday, actually two shows in one, features 100 vehicles on Saturday and a whole new group of 100 vehicles on Sunday. Thirty awards are presented each day. The award winners from Saturday will be back on Sunday and on display in our ‘Winners Circle.’

No trip to Mount Angel is complete without a visit to the century old Benedictine Sisters’ Queen of Angels Monastery and to Mount Angel Abbey. Busses leave from near the bandstand every half-hour to the abbey, from 11 AM to 5 PM on Saturday and Sunday. The Benedictine Sisters offer daily self-guided tours of their monastery grounds, an icon exhibit and operate a charming gift shop with many objects hand-crafted by the nuns.

Oregon’s oldest and longest running Oktoberfest began in 1966, part of the tradition of over 125 years of harvest festivals under various names and formats. The community founded by German pioneers in 1867, with its surrounding agricultural countryside bears a striking resemblance to rural Bavaria, making an Oktoberfest a natural choice.

The Oktoberfest format was an immediate success, attracting 39,000 people in 1966 its first year. Since then, the festival has grown every year, with average attendance now topping 350,000. The festival is organized and run by volunteers. It is the largest, all volunteer led event in the Northwest. It is dedicated to providing a quality, reasonably priced family celebration, which raises funds for deserving, non-profit organizations in Mount Angel and the surrounding communities.
Since it began 49 years ago, Oktoberfest has donated over three million dollars to schools, churches, civic organizations, youth activities, senior services, hospitals, and a score of other worthwhile causes. This does not include the money earned by the fifty food booths, sponsored by civic and non-profit organizations. Last year they grossed over $650,000. For many of these groups, Oktoberfest is their major fund raising activity of the year.

Throughout the years, Mount Angel’s Oktoberfest has offered traditional Bavarian food, fun and entertainment for the whole family. The 2013 Oktoberfest features fifty food booths, a large arts and crafts show and a whole lot more.

    We just moved to Portland from Hawaii. It has been an emotional and stressful roll coaster ride. Tickets to this event would be a fantastic way to finally unwind and start to make some new memories in our new home city. The double bonus would be my husbands excitement as he comes from a German background. Fingers crossed.

    As the umpa band begins, and the crowd begins to sway, the banging of beer steins ring thoughout the room as the rich cloud of jolly energy brings a smile to everyone’s face. The smell of bratwurst and saurkraut make my mouth drool as I scan the sea of leiderhosen with glee and I dance and swing my glass to the alpine horns and I fill with joy and sing till the morn cuz I am part of the best damn oktoberfest in the world, here in mount Angel, and its all because PDX pipeline picked me as the winner! I won’t let you down, I will go full leiderhosen, and I will bring my metal stein, and I will be the jolliest damn guy Mt Angel has ever seen!

  114. Athena T. August 29, 2014 at 10:55 am #

    I just moved to Portland and I’m very excited to attend local festivals. I’m particularly interested in this one because I’m a craft beer and sausage lover, but I’ve never attended an Octoberfest, and since this is the oldest and longest running Octoberfest in the area, I would find it thrilling to attend so I could experience a wonderful part of my new adoptive town’s heritage.

  115. Scott August 29, 2014 at 10:55 am #

    I need to go to this! It is the only place where I can wear my lederhosen and not look like a weirdo.

  116. Brian T August 29, 2014 at 10:57 am #

    I’ve lived near here for several years but have never gone; I’d love it if this year could be the year!

  117. Jackie August 29, 2014 at 11:12 am #

    It’s my 30th Birthday and I would love to spend it doing something memorable. Please select me. I eould be so thankful.

    My mom was born and raised in Germany until she was 19 when she met my dad while he was in the army and stationed in Frankfurt. They moved to the states and she hasn’t been back to Germany in over 30 years! They’ve lived in California and Hawaii during most of that time and hasn’t been to a single Oktoberfest in the states. I’m taking her there for her 56th birthday which is on the 13th so it would be awesome to make her experience that much better with all of the extras that Oregon has to offer

  147. KellyL September 4, 2014 at 5:44 pm #

    The drawing is on my birthday. What a great surprise gift this would be! I love Mt. Angel and have not been able to go to Oktoberfest since my kids were babies and cried so much I couldn’t do anything but have lunch in a restaurant and head home. Boo hoo! I would be so thankful for tickets so the kids–who are now teenagers–and I could really enjoy it this time! Many thanks.

  148. Noel September 4, 2014 at 5:46 pm #

    I’ve always wanted to go! Hope I can finally make it this year!

  149. Sue Bohr September 4, 2014 at 6:37 pm #

    I always wanted to go I drove thru with my mom in her wheel chair but we didn’t have the money to go in and enjoy it….

  150. Nola September 4, 2014 at 6:48 pm #

    I left Colorado a year ago to come to Oregon for grad school, and now that it’s Beerfest season again, it’s getting harder and harder to bear. Please make me feel welcome and let me into the Oktoberfest!

    Wow – this would be fantastic to attend! I’m new(ish) to the NW (from New Zealand) and this looks like one of the best Oktoberfest’s on the west coast.
