Oktoberfest parking is available in two lots, clearly marked as you approach Mount Angel on Hwy 214.  The cost for parking and shuttle service is $10 for the entire day.

  • Blue lot north of town
  • Red lot on the south
  • .Both lots have shuttles running every 15-20 minutes which will drop you close to the center of activities.





There is always plenty of room at the RV and tent areas, but hotel and motel lodging is scarce. The closest lodging is in Silverton, we recommend The Oregon Garden Resort  sponsors of our Alpinegarten, and Woodburn area hotels are nearby also. There are many places in the Salem and Wilsonville areas.

There are four RV areas in town during Oktoberfest, none of which have hook ups. Each is well marked as you enter town and all are within easy walking distance of the festival. Please call the sites directly for information or reservations. Contact information is embedded for each location.

  • The Red Lot off Academy St. does not take reservations. They take drop ins. The phone is available for pricing and questions.
  • The Weingarten lot does not take reservations until January each year.
  • Hoffer’s RV will not take reservations until July 2023. This lot accepts only self contained RVs and does not take tent campers.

Resort and Lodging did a write up on Mt. Angel’s Oktoberfest and can offer suggestions where to stay.

Transportation partners:

When no one wants to be the designated driver, there are other options:

Book a Room, Take a Taxi

Check into the Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton or another hotel or a Bed and Breakfast then take a taxi or ride the Silver Trolley during operating hours.  Silverton is only a few miles away and a quick trip.  Woodburn (about 15-20 minutes away) or Wilsonville and Salem (about 25-30 minutes away) have several hotels and rooms available, and private taxis can be called.

Consider carpooling

Another option is getting together with friends for a carpool. Enjoy a ride with friends, and then you only need one driver! Check out the GoMates site to help set that up!

Ride for Hire, Lyft, Uber

Both Lyft and Uber are now operating in our area.  Load your app, load your ‘home’ address and launch out to the festival using 5 N. Garfield St., Mt. Angel, OR 97362 as your destination.  The driver won’t be able to stop right in front of City Hall, but you will be placed near a drop off point for easy identification and pick up.


  • Willamette Valley Yellow Cab will have cabs on site. The will be available for service in front of the Biergarten. Willamette Valley Yellow Cab will be running specials during Oktoberfest to help keep the fun affordable. Call their dispatch at 503-362-2411 for service and details.

Arrange for private transportation

Rent a van, shuttle or full size bus.  These can be arranged with some well established transportation vendors:
