Willkommen! • 50th CELEBRATION

Explore Oktoberfest Enter to win a chance to see Germany From the hop fields and vineyards at nearby farms to St. Mary Church and the Glockenspiel, Mount Angel reminds many people of Germany. Especially during the third weekend of September when local volunteers welcome thousands of guests to enjoy great food, drink, dancing, music, activities and more. From shouts of “Prost” to colorful dirndls, you might have a yearning to travel to Germany. And if that’s truly the case, you better acquire a Passport. Courtesy of Lufthansa Airlines, Mount Angel Oktoberfest is hosting a drawing to win two flights from Seattle to any airport in Germany where Lufthansa flies. To enter, Oktoberfest visitors need to purchase an $8 Passport at any admission venue or at the Mount Angel Chamber of Commerce booth. Then, they need to get six of seven stamps from designated venues and return the Passport to the Information Booth at the heart of the village by the Harvest Monument. Venues with Passport stamps are: Alpinegarten, where you can learn more about the history of growing hops in Mount Angel and enjoy the Alphorns. Prostgarten, the quiet garden adjacent to the historic Saalfeld house where you can bring food from nearby food booths and listen to accordion music. Kindergarten, with petting zoo, hay maze, Performance Pavilion and activities for the young and young at heart. Die Früchtsäule or Harvest Monument, a reminder of the community’s farming roots and the goodness of creation, Die Früchtsäule is the official symbol of the Oktoberfest. St. Mary Church, known as the “Gothic Jewel of the

50th Mount Angel Oktoberfest Part of understanding where you have traveled to or what you are celebrating is learning a little history. Mount Angel residents Monica Bochsler and Nancy Bochsler have spent countless hours collecting information, memorabilia and photographs of Oktoberfests of the past. The historical display will have a timeline of the events and changes and the people who made the on-going celebration and benefit for area nonprofits possible. Stop by and take a good look at the photographs to see if you recognize any of the people volunteering at the festival in its early years – some may still be helping today! 4 • Sept. 16, 2015

Passport to G e


Valley.” The 103-year-old church is a must-see, with its amazing architecture and free concerts. Weingarten, home to family friendly entertainment and great German and Northwest wines. Biergarten, located in the Mount Angel Festhalle, the rest of the year, it is available for weddings, receptions, education, conferences and other large gatherings. Once you have at least six stamps on the Passport, the Info Booth folks can enter your ticket into the drawing. Oktoberfest President Chris Bischoff will draw a winner at 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 20 in the Weingarten. You do not need not be present to win. The winner will receive airfare for two people from Seattle to German, courtesy of Lufthansa, plus $300 to assist the transportation to Seattle!

The von Trapps

The next generation of the musically gifted von Trapp family will perform at the 50th Mount Angel Oktoberfest on Saturday and Sunday. Siblings Sofia, Melanie, Amanda and August, the great-grandchildren of the Captain and Maria von Trapp, are reinventing the legacy of their birthright for the modern age. The von Trapps’ musical journey began as a fluke and a brainstorm in 2001. During summer visits to Montana, their grandfather Werner von Trapp taught them the Austrian folk songs he loved as a child. When he became too ill to travel, they crafted a homemade recording to cheer him up, never expecting it would inspire a career in music. The von Trapps have been on stage together ever since. Their performances make room for melodicas and ukuleles, lyrics that can unspool in 10 languages, twinges of Appalachia and Portlandia, some shout-outs to the Mamas & Papas, all filtered through the DNA of the most beloved musical ever, The Sound of Music.

Alpinegarten Intimate, interactive

The Alpinegarten on South Garfield across from the Weingarten prides itself on doing things a little bit different. It features the new most interactive entertainment. If you are a beer geek, this is the place to try a great beer. Mount Angel is in an important hops-growing region and hops are a key ingredient for brewers. Guests who want to learn more about how hops are grown are welcome to check out the exhibit by the Oregon Hop Growers Association in the Alpinegarten. Performers include the Salzburger Echo with their long Alpine horns, Gruber Family Bavarian Band and Europa, a new band for 2015. The venue is smaller than the Weingarten or Biergarten and there isn’t a bad seat in the house. The entertainers do a great job of interacting with the crowd. Learn to do the Chicken Dance, join in the songs, take part in the contests. The Alpinegarten is open to families with children until closing each night.

You can meet people from all over in the Alpinegarten. Most come because it is so much fun and there is good food and music. The younger crowd comes to the Alpinegarten for its craft beers, while the older generation comes to dance on the parquet floor. The Alpinegarten also is a WiFi hot spot!

Family friendly entertainment The Weingarten is a fun, family-friendly venue. There are the small tykes in drindl and lederhosen, t-shirts and shorts, who spontaneously start dancing to the side of the large stage. There’s the incredible food – fondue, Schnitzel sandwiches, sausages and other treats – prepared by members of St. Mary Church. There’s the friendly, smiling faces of folks sharing the celebration with family, friends, and friends they haven’t met yet. The Weingarten is a place where people can sit down and relax with good wine or a good beer and food while listening to great music. One reason people return year-after-year is because of the Z Musikmakers, a Mount Angel Alpine Band. People have watched the talented Zollner sisters grow up on the stage. They put on a fantastic show and it is one everyone can enjoy. The Weingarten is known for its sawdust floors and blue and white-checkered banners. Volunteers welcome guests and make sure they know Mount Angel is glad they are here. It’s a Wi-Fi hot spot.

Die Früchtsäule – Harvest Monument The idea for Die Früchtsäule, the harvest monument, came from the Cannstatter Volksfest in Stuttgrart, Germany. A new monumnet is erected each year in the center of our village for Oktoberfest. It reminds us of our farming roots and to be thankful for the harveest and goodness of creation. Die Früchtsäule is the official symbol of the Mount Angel Oktoberfest, and a favorite meeting place and photo area for festival-goers. Artist Philis Schmidt has made the Harvest Monument for 14 years. She carefully placed an assortment of flower and vegetable seeds, beans and other items on a board to create this year’s monument panels. “The festival is welcoming,” Schmidt said. “It’s a warm hospitality and it’s comfortable. It’s a place you can take your grandchildren.” Just as she considers each detail of the eight panels for the monument, Schmidt said the Mount Angel Oktoberfest Board of Directors consider each and every detail of the festival, down to minute items the public would never notice. She praises the board members for the work. “The board members are incredibly generous,” Schmidt said. “They are involved in their church and other civic activities and still make time for Ofest. They are really community spirited people.”

Moving experiences Half-marathon, 5K, 10K, golf The Oktoberfest Road Race Half-Marathon, which starts at 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 19, showcases some of the great farmland and stunning views Mount Angel has to offer. The route begins at Humpert Park and heads out on country roads north of town past hop farms and nurseries and vineyards. With views of Mount Hood and Kraemer Pond on Zollner Creek it makes its way to the south side of Mount Angel past more hop farms, new hazelnut orchards and around the base of the historic Mount Angel Abbey before heading back into town for a fast finish.

Oktoberfest’s 5k and 10k runs start at the same location, with day-of-race registration or packet pickup from 7:15 a.m. - 8:45 a.m. and start at 9 a.m. Runners can burn off calories – then go enjoy sausage and beer!

Meanwhile over at Mount Angel’s Evergreen Golf Course, golfers will be getting into the swing of things with the annual Oktoberfest Golf Tournament Saturday, Sept. 19. The event helps raise money for local junior golf equipment. The 18-hole, shotgun-start tournament is a four-person scramble with lunch and prizes immediately following.

Weekend Cruz-ns

The Cruz-n, a part of the great Mount Angel Oktoberfest, is two separate shows in one. The first is held on Saturday and the second on Sunday. Both shows run from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Both are at the St. Mary School across from the church and adjacent to the Kindergarten. The shows are sponsored by BMW of Salem. The Cruz-n features some of the finest automotive examples from the early 1900s to the present time in addition to vintage military vehicles. There are dash plaques, T-shirts and a framed photograph for every vehicle registered and awards are given in a variety of categories. On both days of the show Donald RV & Storage presents music and car talk.

Friday Salute to Our Armed Forces

Mount Angel Oktoberfest wants to say thank you to all who have served or are currently serving in our military. We appreciate the sacrifices you have made to help protect our nation. On Friday, thanks to sponsorship from mid-valley Les Schwab tire stores, Oktoberfest is extending to all current and former military personnel a $2 discount on venue admission. The 4:30 p.m. show by the Marion County Citizen’s Band at the Village Bandstand will be a patriotic salute filled with John Philip Sousa marches and heartfelt national pride

St. Mary Church

St Mary Church, called the Gothic Jewel of the Willamette Valley, provides the backdrop for the Cruz-ns. There are free concerts in the church every afternoon of Oktoberfest thanks to NW Natural. Visitors are also welcome to attend services. See the festival schedule pages for details.

DONAUMUSIKANTEN Take a look at the picture... The crowd is on its feet, clapping and smiling, the musicians are off the stage and on the tables... What’s this? Oktoberfest Weingarten fans know it can only be the “Original Donaumusikanten.” The band has been performing at Oktoberfest more than 20 years. They were formed from a group of community musicians to specifically meet the needs of Oktoberfest for an authentic Bavarian Band. Every year or so, one or two members are swapped out, which has kept the group fresh and exciting. They have made the Weingarten a showcase of Bavarian folk culture. The band returns to Oregon from banks of Germany’s beautiful blue Danube River, in Bavaria, courtesy of Lufthansa, the official airline of the Mount Angel Oktoberfest. These highly versatile, international musicians play percussion, keyboards, guitar, bass guitar, clarinet and trumpet. The Donaumusikanten come to Mount Angel as a part of a cultural exchange program with the Federal Republic of Germany. They are Oktoberfest volunteers!

DIE SCHLAUBERGER Festival-goers across the nation have a love affair going on with America’s number one German Band, die Schlauberger. And no wonder – this band is a powerhouse of musical expertise and expends enough energy to light up the energetic Mount Angel Oktoberfest Biergarten crowds.

From the moment they step on stage until they have wrung the final note from their last song, die Schlauberger has the audience up and dancing to their powerful renditions of German favorites and other crowd pleasing tunes. Die Schlauberger engages everyone within earshot to “expect the unexpected,

then to join in the fun.” This band’s potent sound, powerful stage presence and sincere interaction with the audience is a combination that will have festival patrons thrilled they came to the Oktoberfest Biergarten. Don’t miss the band whose very mission is “Keeping the Traditionalists on their Feet and the New Generation Interested.” Die Schlauberger (dSb for those who have difficulty with German) means the “Wise Guys” (kind of). They play an interesting combination of German folk music and alpine rock. They are a big hit with the younger Biergarten crowd.

SALZBURGER ECHO Hang on to your Lederhosen, the Salzburger Echo is once again performing at the Mount Angel Oktoberfest!  Salzburger Echo is not your ordinary German band. 

KERRY CHRISTENSEN Kerry Christensen, one of the world’s best Alpine yodelers, was raised on a potato farm in Grace, Idaho. During his travels to Austria in 1976 he discovered the folk music that would be his life. Armed with recordings of the great yodelers, Kerry returned from Europe, determined to master the art. While driving the family tractor around the fields, he practiced 14-15 hours a day.

Performing in the styles of German, Austrian and Swiss musicians, as well as their own brand of fun, they bring an energy and flair not often seen in North America. Their 12-foot Swiss Alphorns, Austrian cowbells and harmony yodeling brings their audiences face to face with European culture. 

He drove his father crazy and was banished to practicing in the garage—to no avail, as yodeling carries very well. Disney World in Orlando, Fla. hired him to work at the German Pavilion of the Epcot Center in 1984. He was the Disney World Yodeler 1984 to1990.

Since their beginning in 1993, they have toured the U.S. and Europe, gaining countless fans along the way. You can see them each day in the Oktoberfest Alpinegarten, and don’t miss their Alphorn performances at Saint Mary Parish Church at 12:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. The natural acoustics of the church add to the beauty of the alphorns and make for a performance you won’t want to miss!

He is joined at Oktoberfest by Darlene Jones on the accordian. You can hear them at The Village Bandstand and the Alpinegarten.

THE GORDANAIRS Returning for this year’s festival is a wonderful band from Vancouver, British Columbia – The GORDANAIRS European Musik. The Gordanairs were created when brothers, Gordon and Danny Groening, began playing music together over 30 years ago. They started as a duo, Gordy on the accordion and Danny on the drums. Their German parents encouraged the pursuit of music and played a huge role in their success. Practicing nightly throughout the week and playing out on weekend was pretty much normal. Playing at cabarets and restaurants on a regular basis led them to getting more well know. The Vancouver Alpen Club, Austria Vancouver Club and the Mission Alpen Club are just a few of the places they played over the years.   Today, the band consists of Rob Goddard on trumpet and Kenny Ogilvie on bass.  The Gordanairs play at all major Oktoberfests in the Northwest and are well received not only for their Bavarian European Musical style, but as well, for their entertaining performances. Accompanied by their wives, they entertain audiences with German traditions such as Folk Dancing (Schuhplattling), songs played on the cowbells, alphorn performances and their always popular

Oktoberfest – 50 years of celebration Excerpts from a Sept. 1, 2015 Our Town article

For the 32nd celebration of Mount Angel’s Oktoberfest, Connie Lauzon and Mary Grant did some digging to discover the festival’s history. Gathering newspaper clippings and interviewing past and present board members, Grant and Lauzon created a program called, Oktoberfest, This is Your Life. Prosit!

Agnes Diehl shared they wanted to create a festival where a “family could go and not have to have their hands in their pockets all the time.” She remembers a group of people went to lunch at Evergreen Golf Club where they met Paul DeShaw, who offered his ideas. 

The 22-page document they wrote had interviews from Agnes and Virgil Diehl, Jim Unger and Tom Ewing.

There is the version it was born at Evergreen, Lauzon wrote. “Sam Bates noted that a Salem golfer suggested that an Oktoberfest theme would be good for Mount Angel because of the German-Swiss background of the town.” The Mount Angel community was founded by German pioneers in 1867, and since the surrounding area resembles rural Bavaria, organizers thought the Oktoberfest would be a natural fit.

Sitting on her couch in her Francis Sch midt & Orv Mount Angel home, Lauzon ille Frank wrangle sa usage, 1968 recently shared old photographs . and the write up. One quote from Grant summarized Oktoberfest’s history. There also is some question about how much money the Mount Angel Chamber of Commerce loaned the “Sometimes history is clouded by our memories,” Grant Oktoberfest committee – some say it was $100 and some said. “There are often times many versions of the same $400, Margaret Hoffer, a city councilor at the time, story. The real consistent element in this story is how true remembers $500. One thing that has remained constant, the festival has remained to the vision of its founders.” for 50 celebrations is a chamber member is a part of the Jim Unger told the two that the important element of board of directors. the festival was keeping it a nonprofit. Since the festival began in 1966, it has raised $3 million for local nonprofits The first year there wasn’t an Oktoberfest and has helped the library, fire board or president or bylaws.

They often and he always started talking about this festival,” prepared dinner for 100 people and 1,200 attended. Diehl said.  46 • Sept. 16, 2015

“They did a lot of scurrying around local towns to find more sausages and what went with to meet the unexpected demand,” according to Lauzon and Grant’s research. All in all, tha first year, there was a lot of scurrying to make things work. By the second year, the organizational plans began to take place. At the second festival in 1967, the Catholic Daughters joined the Seminary Mother’s Club to host the German dinners at St. Mary’s School. On the menu was sauerkraut, Oktoberfest wurst, assorted breads and cheeses, mashed potatoes, green beans with mushrooms, applesauce and homemade pies. Prices were 75 for kids and $1.50 for adults. In 1967, the festival grew to 20 booths and had a teenage dance, scenes from the from the opera “Carmen,” 6,000 pounds of sausage and 5,000 gallons of beer. 

$92,000 to organizations over eight years. As cultural attitudes shifted toward drinking, Oktoberfest’s board of directors also realized the need to change. Jerry and Connie Lauzon moved to Mount Angel in 1989. Jerry was the director of public relations for 20 years. While enchanted with Mt. Angel and the festival, he immediately realized the festival’s rowdy reputation – with the large consumption of beer and the stickers – were “vexing problems” he was determined to solve. He was one of the directors who was determined to change the festival from a rowdy party to a family friendly festival. 

The “Good Monday Morning” Statesman Journal column written in 1967 still applies today:

He began working with others and the OLCC to make changes on how beer could be sold – no longer in buckets.

“We did a stint of walking Mt. Angel’s Oktoberfest, though, and are now convinced the entire event, besides being a carload of fun, is a direct plot against our diet. We inhaled enough sausages and luscious unspellables (sic) to feed an army. Our won’t power weakened every time we passed a booth. One thing is sure – we never saw more happy, friendly faces in one place.”

“I believe beer is a gift of God and to see it being consumed this way was not right,” he said. “It was making a mockery out of such a beautiful gift.”

In 1974, three women were elected to the Oktoberfest board for the first time. They were Henrietta Saalfeld, Jeanne Hannon and Joyce Lindsay. Mary Grant has been the festival’s only woman president. Mt. Angel resident Willie Verboort remembers when Mt. Angel had a Dairy Day and a Flax Festival.

It was at the 25th celebration of Oktoberfest that Mary Grant asked Nann Fleck to teach the local children the Maypole dance. “Once we started with one dance, we kept building the tradition of dancing from there,” she said. The dancing was one way to change the image of Mt. Angel’s festival from being a rowdy party to a family friendly event occasion.

She’s proud of how hard many people “Where the idea for the Oktoberfest came, have worked to make the festival what it well, your guess is as good as mine,” he said. 3. alfeld, 198 Sa a tt rie n is today. “I remember it was Paul DeShaw and Dick He Zeis talking about starting the festival and how “There is happy music, great dancing, good food and some others suggested the setting and the hops in the beautiful weather,” Fleck said. “It’s a place to bring your valley reminded them of Germany.” family.” Verboort attended his first festival when he was 21 years old and hasn’t missed one since. He served on the board From a tent with sawdust on the floor to the new Festhalle, for 14 years, including as president. Verboort is proud of how Oktoberfest has grown and changed, too. In 1975, Mt. Angel’s Oktoberfest was 10 years old and Munich’s was 159. Mt. Angel’s population was listed at Verboort said if someone had told him Oktoberfest would 2,500. That year, Verboort told the Capital Journal that last 50 years, he wouldn’t have believed them. “700 kegs were sold.” “There aren’t many that started 50 years ago that are “We used to judge how successful a festival was by still going strong like Oktoberfest,” he said. “We never how many kegs of beer were tapped,” he said. In 1976, Verboort reported that Oktoberfest had given away imagined Oktoberfest would be this successful.” Mt.

Bavarian banners dance in breeze


Some romantic souls believe the blue and white flag is in honor of two treasured Bavarian flowers – the pure snowy Alpine edelweiss blossoms coupled with the alluring blue gentian. They see the Bavarian flag as a bouquet tribute to the Royal wedding which has been celebrated in Munich at Oktoberfest since 1810. For others, the banner serves as a heraldic wish for blue skies trimmed with fluffy white clouds.

The Webertanz or traditional maypole dance, has been an important part of Mount Angel Oktoberfest for more than 25 years. School children open the festival at the Village Bandstand each day. They are followed by the traditional mother-daughter dances and the boys in their light-hearted, athletic dances. It produces an engaged community and admiring audiences. The dancing adds to Oktoberfest by including the youngest to the oldest members of our community. The dancers are an integral part

Dirndls and lederhosen Das dirndl (dirn’d’l) and die lederhosen (lay’-dar-hoe-zen) originated in the European Alps. Das Dirndl or peasant dress is a three-piece outfit: a jumper-like dress with the low bodice, a white lacetrimmed blouse and a lacy apron. The embroidery on the men’s pants or lederhosen usually reflects hunting themes along with oak leaves and acorns. The men’s outfit may have suspenders called hosentraeger.

The GLOCKENSPIEL The nation’s tallest musical animated Glockenspiel, located in the heart of the village, springs into action at 11 a.m., 1, 4 and 7 p.m. The bells toll and seven carved figures begin a circular journey, sharing the history of the area. The figures depict Mount Angel’s history: a Kalapuya Brave who climbed the butte (Abbey Hill) to pray, at “Tapalamaho” or “dwelling 48 • Sept. 16, 2015

of making Mount Angel Oktoberfest a folk festival. They are a symbol of the town coming together to make Oktoberfest great. The dancers practice in the summer, preparing for the moment girls put on dirndls and adorns their heads with a crowns of flowers, and boys dons lederhosen and a big smile. Then something magical happens. It’s Mount Angel Oktoberfest. Let the festivities begin!

The Chicken Dance The hundreds of thousands of Oktoberfest fans who de­scend on Mount Angel every year have one major thing in common: Almost without exception, if you walk up to one of them and say, Chicken Dance, the first thing they’ll say is, “Mount Angel Oktober­fest!” The Chicken Dance has become the official dance of the Oktoberfest. Based on an Easter theme. It simu­lates the hatching of a bird and the emergence of new life. The dance begin with the chick pecking away on the inside of its shell seeking freedom. The shell is broken, the newly hatched chick exercises its wings and shakes out its tail feathers. Free at last, it dances about in merry circles. No one is sure when the Chicken Dance came to Mount Angel, or how it became so popular, but it seems to have always been here.

The volunteers of the Mount Angel Fire Department are ready to assist at a moment’s notice. During Oktoberfest they fulfill some special roles in preventing problems and ensuring safety. Firefighters help prepare the venues, and after the booths move in the department inspects each one to be sure they have their fire suppression equipment. Every morning during the festival,

the group meets behind the scenes to discuss safety. They staff the fire station to avoid delayed response due to traffic, pkus they have a special Medical Assist unit activated for fast and maneuverable response through the crowds. After the crowds melt away, firefighters help put tables away as Mount Angel turns back into a sleepy village.

The highly quaffable beers of Bavaria are brewed according to a law that has been in effect for almost 500 years. “We particularly deem that henceforth and in all places in our cities and markets and in the countryside that to no beer may be applied and used more parts than barley, hops and water.” The Bavarian Purity Law of 1516, enacted by Duke Wilhelm IV, is still in force today, making it the oldest consumer protection law in the world. All the beers from Germany sold at the Mount Angel Oktoberfest are still brewed in accordance with Das Bayrische Reinheitgebot (Bavarian Purity Law). No wonder these beers are of superior quality! Mount Angel Oktoberfest, Maletis Beverage, Warsteiner, General Distributing, Point Blank Distributing and Kastle Hill Wines encourage everyone to drink responsibly. encourage everyone to drink responsibly.
