Get ready to eat, drink and Polka Zuhaus! From the pandemic to wildfires, the organizers of the 2020 Mount Angel Oktoberfest are still bringing the Bavarian tradition to our community.
This year, the annual event is going virtual. But this isn’t just a simple sit back and enjoy the show. Mount Angel Oktoberfest is giving you the chance to bring all the aspects of the in-person event to the comforts of your home.
Full details on how you can watch the event, buy food and beverages, and get fun merchandise are listed below.
2020 Mount Angel Oktoberfest
On Saturday, October 3 from 4-10 p.m., the annual event will come to life with live entertainment and some taped performances. The event will be available via livestream.
2020 entertainment includes:
- Gruber Family Band
- Festival Brass
- Chardon Polka Band
- Molly B and the Squeezebox Band
- Die Schlauberger
- Board members competing in the Olympics
- The Klaberheads
Accessing the Oktoberfest entertainment is $10. You can purchase access on the Oktoberfest’s online store. The link to watch the event will be emailed to you the day before.
Food and Beverage
It really wouldn’t be Oktoberfest without a brat and a brew. Mount Angel Oktoberfest has all your favorites available for purchase at the event’s online store. Get sausages, fresh rolls, mustards, German beers, wines and more. It is easy to mix and match to build the ideal food and beverage package for your household. Or choose a pre-selected family, food or beverage package.
There is one catch. You will need to pick up your order from Mount Angel, which is about a 45-minute drive from Portland. I don’t know about you, but a car ride sounds kind of nice after being cooped up inside for so long.
They are offering three pickup days at the Mount Angel Festhalle. This building is traditionally used as the Biergarten during the annual Oktoberfest.
Pickup dates include:
- Thursday, October 1 from 4-8 p.m.

Merchandise for the 2020 Oktoberfest ranges from t-shirts, steins, streamers, hat pins and more. The t-shirt sports a very 2020 design that you’ll want to see for yourself. Visit the online store to see all the items offered.
