Saluting Our Armed Forces
Friday of Festival
Les Schwab Tire Centers and Mt. Angel Oktoberfest appreciate the dedication of veterans and servicemen and women. We want to say THANK YOU! to all of the people who have served or are currently serving in our military.
On Friday of Oktoberfest, we would like to extend to all current and former military personnel a $2 discount on your venue admission.
Military vehicles will be on display in the downtown area at the corner of College and Garfield strees from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm including a Stuart Tank and other older military vehicles. This is a sampling of the Military Vehicle display on Saturday and Sunday near the Car Show.
The 4:00 pm show by the Marion County Citizen's Band at the Bandstand will be a patriotic salute filled with John Philip Sousa Marches and heartfelt national pride.
Chris Bischoff, Mount Angel Oktoberfest President will be speaking briefly on behalf of Oktoberfest in each of the Venues, to say thanks to our military personnel during the afternoon.
