Our Festival Name
The Wurstfest Association of New Braunfels, Texas and the Mt. Angel, Oregon Chamber of Commerce have reached a Settlement Agreement resolving the use of the term Wurstfest for their respective Wurstfest festivals. The Wurstfest Association of New Braunfels has a registered trademark that predates the Mt. Angel Wurstfest and has informed the Mt. Angel Chamber of Commerce that they object to the Chamber's use of the name Wurstfest. In order to amicably resolve this issue and avoid expensive litigation, the Mt. Angel Chamber has agreed to cease using the term Wurstfest. As a result we have chosen the new name Volksfest to represent all people!
The Volksfest Committee is continuing with plans to hold the 2021 festival. Our festival will have a different look with this pandemic and much depends on covid-related guidelines as we enter 2021.
