Kickoff: Time to get this party started

The party before the party – Oktoberfest Kickoff – will be held at the Mt. Angel Festhalle and Biergarten Sept. 10. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and at 7 p.m. the Gervais Knights of Columbus will serve a barbeque chicken dinner for all ticket holders.

The $40 ticket includes dinner, beverages (beer, wine, cider and Pepsi products) and entertainment by the Gordanairs.

The Gordanairs usually play in the Weingarten during Oktoberfest. They were a great success when they performed at the 2019 Kickoff, too. There will be music, dancing and fun until midnight. About 8 p.m., nine pre-registered teams will vie for honors in a light-hearted competition – the Oktoberfest “Olympics”. 

Tickets are available at Oktoberfest.org.  The Mt. Angel Festhalle is located at 500 Wilco Hwy NE. Mt. Angel Oktoberfest runs Sept. 15-18.
