One of the longest standing, best-loved folk festivals in the Northwest, celebrates its 51st celebration from September 15 through September 18, 2016. The Mount Angel Oktoberfest began as a traditional fall festival to celebrate the bounty of the earth and the goodness of creation. 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. What many people don’t know is that this is Great Bavarian style party as well as a huge fundraiser supporting over 50 non-profit organizations who operate the food booths. Oktoberfest Inc. has donated over three million dollars to schools, churches, civic organizations, youth activities, senior services, hospitals, and a score of other worthwhile causes with their proceeds from the festival.



  • 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 – Fri, Sat & Sun. 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 other festival favorites. The Alpinegarten features delicious beers and refreshing wines.

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 acoustic 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 farm fun activities including a 4-H barnyard, pony rings and hay maze courtesy of Wilco; interactive bouncing amusements, climbing walls and other physical activities. The Kindergarten Pavilion provided by Columbia Bank 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 and volleyball tournaments, a 10-kilometer fun run and 5-kilometer run/walk and a ½ Marathon. The fun begins early on Saturday at Humpert Park.

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. The Cruz-n Car Show is sponsored by BMW of Salem.

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.

Throughout the years, Mount Angel’s Oktoberfest has offered traditional Bavarian food, fun and entertainment for the whole family. The 2016 Oktoberfest features fifty food booths, a large arts and crafts show and a whole lot more.

      What could be better than brats, beer and polka!

    • Rayna September 10, 2016 at 9:17 pm #

      I truly believe that the Mt. Angel Oktoberfest is the best beer and cultural festival in Oregon. Yep. I said it. Sorry, not sorry.

      Not only can you expect to adorn your middle-aged self shamelessly with a floral headdress, you will be ending your evening in the Alpinegarten, Korbinian in hand, fully immersed in an inexplicable yet inevitable conga-line alongside raucous live polka music. Yes. Dreams can come true.

      Please, for the love of sausage, let me win these tickets. Thank you.

  2. Emily August 29, 2016 at 2:39 pm #

    Sausage and kraut is what I’m all about! I’d love to make it to this festival for the first time!

    Last year my youngest was so disappointed to learn that he would miss yet another year of Oktoberfest (“it’s in SEPTEMBER?!!”). This year I would love to go with all my drinking-age kids. An experience I’m sure would create wonderful memories (and some great stories for generations to come). Thanks for your consideration.

  31. Jason Barton August 30, 2016 at 12:31 pm #

    Never been to a beer fest before. Would love to explore grandmother’s heritage. She’s Bavarian

  32. Becky August 30, 2016 at 12:32 pm #

  36. Chris Webb August 30, 2016 at 12:38 pm #

    Would be so fun!

  37. Paula-Noel Macfie August 30, 2016 at 12:44 pm #

  39. Tristann August 30, 2016 at 12:47 pm #

    Oktoberfests are one of my favorite fall activities and I would love to experience one at Mt Angel. This weekend is also the anniversary of when my husband proposed to me. We’re both of German decent and It would be awesome to celebrate with the traditional Bavarian food, fun and entertainment.

  40. Tracy DeLashmit August 30, 2016 at 12:51 pm #

    Ich wurde lieben, unser Erbe zu besuchen und zu feiern. Mit einem letzten Namen wie DeLashmit wissen Sie, es gibt einige.

My husband and cousin just recently suggested we go and we have booked this in our calendars. great food, beer, dance and excited to check out the car show! Lass uns Party machen

  46. Claire August 30, 2016 at 1:18 pm #

    Our group of friends has been trying to plan a trip to Germany to visit Oktoberfest in Munich, but sadly, life got in the way for another year. Going to the O-fest in Mt. Angel would be a great alternative!

  47. Sam Shepherd August 30, 2016 at 1:27 pm #

    Oktoberfest already! Whew the summer flew by but can’t wait for some chicken dancing, bratwursts and cheering steins! Best fall festival of the year!

    The hills (of Mt. Angel) are alive (rocking) with the sound of (Bavarian) music,
    With (folk) songs they have sung for a thousand (51) years
    The hills (Biergarten) fills my heart (stomach) with the sound (taste) of music (sausage)
    My heart (liver) wants to sing (drink) every song (beer) it hears (sees)…

  114. Goldman September 2, 2016 at 3:31 pm #

  122. Lydia Fahs September 3, 2016 at 9:50 am #

    YES, PLEASE!!!
    Our dear friend Bonnie just moved here from the great city of Chicago, and we want to show her how Oregonians have a good time… And we’ve never been either! And our fourth ticket would be for our lovely designated driver (pregnant lady– can put back a lotta kraut), but if we decide to camp in the fest camping area, we’ll give the fourth ticket to a Craigslister in need!

  123. Celia September 3, 2016 at 10:48 am #

    My dad and I used to go to this when I was a kid… This is the first time since graduating college I’ve been in town for Oktoberfest, so I want to take him now that I’m back :)

  124. MariaElena September 3, 2016 at 11:09 am #

  125. Cassi Bell September 3, 2016 at 12:40 pm #

    I had no idea Mt. Angel Oktoberfest supported so many non-profits. What a great event!

  139. Matthew September 6, 2016 at 12:18 pm #

    I’m part-German and have been to Mt Angel once or twice, but never for this festival of all things Deutschlandian. Danke schön!

  140. Chantell Hartley September 6, 2016 at 12:18 pm #

    I have never been, but the festival is what my dad lives for all year. I would love to surprise him with tickets!

  141. Hillary P September 6, 2016 at 12:32 pm #

    What a hale and hearty motivation to leave my electronic home based bubble, breathe the angelic fair air, imbibe and gorge and commune with nature, and regale with friends and fellow humans. Would love to come home with a meat and beer filled belly and congratulate myself for taking the edge off my cloistered hermitic Portlandian existence.

  142. Amalan September 6, 2016 at 12:37 pm #

    Never been, but you had me at beer!

  146. Chris September 6, 2016 at 2:55 pm #

    Wunderbar! What a great way for us to get in touch with our inner schnitzels! And a chance to don our lederhosen and dirndls, just gathering dust in the back of our closets…

  147. Verena Coury September 6, 2016 at 3:28 pm #

    Ich bin aus Frankfurt! I have my dirndl and lederhosen ready! I miss my home country so much this time of year…PLEASE let me attend!!!

  177. Jeffrey September 8, 2016 at 3:35 pm #

    I like beer! Also, I’ve never visited The Mt Angel Abbey Library, designed by master architect Alvar Aalto, and I’m kind of embarrassed by this. Please help me: I need culture. (And beer!)

  178. Valerie Thompsn September 8, 2016 at 3:41 pm #

    OMG! I lived in Germany for 8 years back in the late 80’s early 90’s and they say the Mt. Angel Oktoberfest is one of the best around. I would love to go and relive some of the best memories of my life!!!!

  179. Ruth September 8, 2016 at 3:44 pm #

    I wonder why I’ve never been to Oktoberfrst? I’ve lived here my whole life. Time to break the chain!

  183. Kristen McGillivray September 8, 2016 at 4:03 pm #

  184. SONYA BALLENGER September 8, 2016 at 4:18 pm #

  194. Mike H September 8, 2016 at 8:36 pm #

    And I thought Sausage Party was just another vehicle for Seth Rogen’s cutting edge humor (and profanity!). This Sausage Party is one I’d actually love to have free tickets for.

  195. Marla September 8, 2016 at 8:56 pm #

    Beer ftw!

    I have always wanted to go to Oktoberfest but have never been able too. I’ve been to Mt. Angle and love it there. It would be something my 3 yr old son would remember for ever and my half German mother in-law would love.
    I also lover German food music and beer Oktoberfest is a wonderful dream land.

  200. Jennifer September 9, 2016 at 7:24 am #
