We are as disappointed as everyone else that there cannot be a full-on Oktoberfest this year, but we can still have fun and make the 55th Oktoberfest memorable!
The important piece of the 55th Oktoberfest will be a chance to donate to the 60+ non-profits who usually benefit from the festival. These donations will be shared between the food booths and others who earn income at the Oktoberfest. Remember, Oktoberfest has no paid staff, and the Board of Directors is all volunteer.
Donate to non-profits
This is the most important piece to the catalog: a chance for you to support all the non-profit food booths that serve 1000's of people each festival. These vendors are non-profit groups that earn the majority of their income from Mount Angel Oktoberfest. Please consider giving to help them make their good works possible. These groups and their volunteers look forward to serving you more delicious treats next year.
The donations made through the catalog will not be tax-deductible. If you wish to make a tax-deductible donation, please proceed to the Mount Angel Community Foundation Donation link. This is the philanthropic arm Oktoberfest, and they will send receipts and complete the necessary steps so your deduction can be taken.
The money collected will be pooled and distributed to the groups and other non-profits who work behind the scenes each year.
