The bands and musicians are brought in from Germany, Slovenia, New York, Canada, and all over the western United States.
Oktoberfest is made for dancing! Watch the fun and prowess of the traditional dance groups. Marvel at the Kleinstadtlers who have a non-traditional take on German Dance. Enjoy the sweetness of the Mt. Angel School children performing the Webertanz, Schottische or Schuchplatter.
