Kickoff to Oktoberfest coming Sept. 7

The Oktoberfest Kick-off Party is Sept. 7 in the Mount Angel Festhalle, also known as the Biergarten, located at 500 S. Wilco Highway in Mount Angel.

Festivities begin at 7 p.m.by: SUBMITTED - A girl in a traditional German dirndl shows off the Oktoberfest Biergarten, known throughout the rest of the year as the Mount Angel Festhalle, which will host the Oktoberfest Kickoff Party Sept. 7.

The dinner is $25 and includes a Gervais Knights of Columbus half barbecue chicken dinner with all the fixings. This is a perennial favorite! The Knights sell thousands of these dinners at Oktoberfest each year. Beer, wine and soft drinks are included in the price of the ticket.

Dance to the music of the S-Bahn, a German festival and dance band from Canada. S-Bahn plays a wide array of music designed to keep guests tapping their toes and dancing the night away. They were great fun at last year’s Kick-Off and are back by popular demand, organizers said in a press release.
