Autumn weekends are reserved for Oktoberfests! This is how Oktoberfest is celebrated in
Mt. Angel, Oregon.
Mt. Angel is not just the location of Oktoberfest, it is also the home of Mt. Angel Abbey, a Benedictine Monastery. The abbey staffs the local parish church, St. Mary Parish.
The abbey was established in 1882 by a group of Benedictine monks from Switzerland.
