New for Oktoberfest 2018

New for Oktoberfest 2018 – under construction!

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; while we have ideas already, we don’t want to announce them until we have solid plans.  Please return to this page and check for the updates about every month or so.  We will highlight this page as festival approaches on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram; so watch your social media.


New Bands

  • Molly B and the Squeezebox Band new this year from Ohio.  The award winning band “SQUEEZEBOX,” featuring “International Polka Association” Hall Of Fame Recipient, “Mollie B”.  This group plays more than 100 engagements a year, and keeps the dance floor hopping.   More information on Molly B and the Squeezebox Band
