The central portion of Oregon's Willamette Valley is home to present-day Mt. Angel. The history of this charismatic town bursts with a sense of community. The town has always maintained a strong set of values that supports its residents in educational, financial, and leisure activities. In the early 1900s, even though it was a small, rural town, the residents of Mt. Angel were able to finance the construction of churches, schools, and businesses. They were also able to lobby for a railroad line to provide transportation for people and crops. The lively community has earned a reputation throughout the state for its festivals and German heritage. Oktoberfest, a yearly celebration since 1966, includes traditional dances, music, food, beer, and activities for all ages. The festival attracts over 300,000 visitors each year and is considered by many to be the largest festival in Oregon.
