Welcome to Mt. Angel

Welcome to Mt. Angel, Oregon, a wonderful place to visit! Nestled between farmland and foothills, Mt. Angel is located 18 miles northeast of Salem on Highway 214. This little town, founded in the late 1800s by German settlers, has an Old World flavor which is heightened by the many Bavarian style storefronts and the beautiful Benedictine Abbey. Mt. Angel celebrates its German heritage each year during the Oktoberfest, one of Oregon's largest festivals. More than 300,000 people attend the four-day event, which has been held in Mt. Angel for more than 40 years.

Wurstfest – February 24th and 25th....Never the Same Date Twice!

In the past, if you found yourself craving Bavarian-style revelry in the dead of winter, you were out of luck. But, fortunately, some of those geniuses in Mt. Angel came up with remedy and they called it Wurstfest.

Mt. Angel Wurstfest always occurs on the Friday and Saturday before Ash Wednesday which is the start of the austere and holy season of Lent. This year’s dates are February 24th and 25th and it’s the 9th Annual.

You’ll find all the fun and food that you’ve come to expect from Wurstfest with the best of the Wurst (sausage), great libations (Warsteiner, 7 Brides, German and local wines), tasty treats, German goodies, a fabulous kindergarten and non-stop music. So put us on your calendar and join us for the “Best of the Wurst” in Mt. Angel at the Festhalle from 10am to 10pm both days.
