Okoberfest 2011

The annual Mount Angel Oktoberfest was in full swing this weekend with lots of food, music, and dancing at the various venues.  The Oktoberfest, a celebration of the Bavarian heritage of Mount Angel, is a major fundraiser for the many nonprofit organizations that have booths at the festival.  

Each year Mount Angel Abbey has a booth downtown near the bandstand, and seminarians of Mount Angel Seminary volunteer to sell Abbey products and to visit with the crowds.

Doug Krings and Brian Sattler greeted visitors and sold candles, fudge, rosaries, and other items from Mount Angel Abbey last Friday evening.
