Kick Off Party

Mt Angel Oktoberfest will host its annual Kick Off party on Sept 9, 2023 at the Mt Angel Festhalle and Biergarten.

This is an evening for those 21 years and older only.

The doors will open at 6:30 pm, followed by dinner at 7:00 pm. The Gervais Knights of Columbus will serve up a full barbeque chicken dinner for all ticket holders.

Music in 2023 will be provided by the Gordanairs. The Gordanairs did a fabulous job for the Kick Off Party in 2022, we are glad to have them back. They will be playing live music for dancing and fun until midnight!

About 8:00 pm there will be an Olympics event with 9 preselected teams competing in this light-hearted event.

Tickets are $45 each and include dinner, live music and bottomless beverages. Tickets are on sale now on-line and locally at Schmidt’s 76, Bochsler Hardware, Mt Angel Sausage Company or Tiny’s Tavern in Mt Angel.

FYI – the Pedal Tractor Race has been discontinued and replaced with the Oktoberfest Olympics.
