Mount Angel kicks off 2022 events

February 2022 Posted in Uncategorized

Mount Angel celebrates the wonders of the wurst from Feb. 25-27 at the Festhalle when the Chamber of Commerce hosts Volksfest.

This will be the 13th rendition of the event, said chamber board president Sarah Bauman. Organizers for the event, which originally was called Wurstfest, say they plan on making this festival a full COVID-19 recovery from months of social isolation.

“We have a great list of vendors,” Bauman said, noting the sausage and other German fare of Mt. Angel Sausage Co, Ebners Custom Meats, and Urban German. Beer will be poured from local and mid-valley favorites Benedictine Brewery, Silver Falls and Block 15, with wine from Paradis, Hanson Vineyards, and Touch of Bavaria also available.

Bauman added that all of the vendors and bar choices are listed on the event website as well as the entertainment schedule.

“We have some other non-sausage vendors attending, too,” she said.

New on the entertainment front, Bauman said, will be the Gruber Family Band and the Leapin’ Louie Comedy show, along with Volksfest returnees Dopplebock, Festival Brass and Bavarian Echoes. 

The $10 admission price is good for all three days, with Mount Angel residents admitted for $5. Those under 21 are free.
