Oktoberfest in Mt. Angel
Eat, Drink, Polka! Zuhaus Edition (At Home Edition)
September OKTOBER 2020 for our 55th celebration! (You read that right… Oktoberfest will be in Oktober) Details are coming.
Visit our brand new STORE to pick up items to make your Zuhaus Oktoberfest!
COVID-19 has thrown everyone a curve ball. It was then topped with a blaze of wildfires. No Kidding! We are restructuring the format for 2020 (again) and working to make the best of the Mount Angel Oktoberfest accessible without the crowds and on a new date. There will be virtual entertainment, German and local craft beer available for purchase, food booths and souvenirs. We ask that orders be submitted by September 30th, so we have time to pull orders and prepare for your arrival.
Please keep in mind – this is a DRAFT format, and we are making changes to improve our Zuhaus Edition Oktoberfest.
Donations: The donations will be taken for the non-profit groups that run our food booths and to support the infrastructure of Oktoberfest through the 2020-2021 gap between festivals. Remember, Oktoberfest has no paid employees, all the Directors are volunteers.
Entertainment: One evening, 4pm-10pm Saturday, October 3. This will include some live entertainment and some taped performances. Our contributing entertainers will include:
To participate in the entertainment, visit the on-line store and purchase the entertainment link. We will need your email address, so be sure you are accurate typing it in, and we will send the link the day before the show.
Beverages: We will have some of the best local crafts in bottles or cans and German import favorites available for Pick-up. Along with Pepsi products and German wines imported by Kastle Hill for order and pick up.
Merchandise: We have an on line catalog to sell 2020 T-shirts and sweatshirts, blinky buttons and hatpins. We will have the annual stein, and wine glasses available as well.
Food: Sausage will be available in our store. It will be frozen when placed in your order. Roth’s Fresh Market Buns and Inglehoffer mustards are available as well. These create a nice base for a zuhaus Oktoberfest.
We have a group of food booths who banded together and are setting up their operations in Silverton at Silverton High School – Home of the Foxes! They are calling their food pod ‘FoxToberfest’. They will be positioned in the parking lot. Access from the Pine Street side and departure to the Grant Street exit. They will be open for business from noon to 7:00pm on Oct 2, 3, 4 (yes, they start one day later than the pick up and they go one day longer than the pick up). Their food will be available for pre-order (wise to make sure you get some!) and drop by ordering as well. More details to come!
Not all the usual food booths will be able to participate. When they do get plans firmed up, Oktoberfest will be proud to share their dates, times, locations and menus. Kudos to them for working under this type of duress!
See you at Pick Up:
- Thursday, October 1, from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm
- Friday, October 2, from 1:00 pm to 9:00 pm
- Saturday, October 3, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
