2023 Mount Angel Oktoberfest
Entertainment Venues and Attractions
The Mount Angel Oktoberfest has nine entertainment venues.
Biergarten is a festhalle with a hardwood dance floor. The location features a full list of beers and entertainment throughout the festival. The days begin with classical Polka and as evening approaches moves into traditional biergarten tunes, and ramps up to Alpine Rock.
Weingarten has a rustic Old World feel with large wooden beams overhead, sawdust on the floor, Bavarian-style bars along with six beers and nine wines to choose from. Lively performers will keep the fun rolling all weekend.
Alpinegarten offers a great view of the stage in every seat in the house. The venue features all of the festival entertainers where audience participation is encouraged. It’s a great place to gather with family and friends. It also serves German and craft beers, wines, ciders and seltzers.
Bandstand is the central outdoor location that brings the whole festival together. There are bleachers for seating to view the family-friendly performances and partake in fun activities, like street dancing.
St. Mary Church is a beautiful gothic style sanctuary. Relax and enjoy spiritual and uplifting music surrounded by stained glass and statues. Choral groups, alphorns, harp and flute and fine organists take turns performing at the church.
Prostgarten and Hopfengarten are covered outdoor venues near the food booths and beverage stations. Hear gentle acoustic accordion music as you catch up with your crew.
Kindergarten is all about the kiddos. The outdoor space includes a stage, pony rides, hay maze, petting farm, face painting, balloon art, rock climbing and bungee trampolines.
Engelgarten, or angel garden, is the newest festhalle. The biergarten offers food, beverages and limited entertainment.
