New for Oktoberfest 2017

Each year Mt. Angel Oktoberfest tries to bring something a bit new to the festival.  We don’t want to change from the great traditions of quality entertainment, great beers and wines, incredible foods, and fun for the family.  Instead we try to add items that will enhance the great festival in place.

Entertainment:

3 New Bands
