Celebrate Oktoberfest

Bring A Bit Of Bavarian Charm To The Northwest!

Oktoberfest is the world’s largest Volksfest (beer festival and travelling funfair) held annually in Munich, Germany. Running from late September to the first weekend in October, it’s a 16- to 18-day folk festival where millions of visitors from around the globe gather to enjoy Bavarian beer, traditional German food, music, and various attractions. While beer takes center stage, Oktoberfest also features traditional costumes, parades, and amusement rides. Established in 1810, this grand celebration has since become a defining aspect of Bavarian culture and an iconic event recognized worldwide.


Closer to home, Mt. Angel’s annual Oktoberfest is a spirited nod to the town’s German heritage. Originating in the 1960s for community fundraising, the festival has transformed into a cultural extravaganza. Visitors are treated to a medley of traditional German food, craft beer, folk music, and dance. Artisans proudly display their crafts, blending the age-old traditions of Germany with the vibrant diversity of the American Northwest. 

If you can’t make it to Munich, or Mt Angel, use these handy recipes to celebrate at home!
