Food and Crafts Downtown
In 2020, Oktoberfest will not be setting up the food booths in down town Mount Angel – we will miss them terribly! Instead we have a group of 5 booths that will be setting up at Silverton High School about 5 miles away in Silverton, OR. We very much support their fund raising efforts and encourage those who are coming to Mount Angel to pick up items for their Zuhaus Oktoberfest to swing by and order some great food and support non-profits.
Creating an Opportunity for Other Non-Profits
One of the most important missions of the Oktoberfest is to create an opportunity for other non-profit organizations to raise funds for their good works. Every Oktoberfest food chalet is run by a non-profit organization. Each purchase you make at a food booth contributes to their success. So eat and enjoy! It not only tastes good, you are doing good!
The artisans who bring their products to Oktoberfest rent their space for sales. These are not restricted to non-profits, but the proceeds from the rent are given back to our communities in the form of grants each year.
These artisans bring hand made products and custom made items. This area of the festival is a great place to wander and find treasures.
After strolling through downtown, watching the Glockenspiel and catching a show at the Bandstand, look for a hidden gem behind the Glockenspiel on Garfield St., 1/2 block north you will find the Prostgarten.
