Hosted by Mt. Angel Chamber of Commerce
For over forty years the Chamber has worked to improve the livability and economic environment of our community. We are a nonprofit organization without any paid staff. All of our work is performed by Board members, Chamber members, and volunteers. The Chamber hosts two major events each year – Hazelnut Fest and Volksfest as well as runs a souvenir booth during Oktoberfest. The goal for these events is to bring people to town, offer a place for local artisans to share their craft, and have some fun.
But our FAVORITE thing is to help with special projects in the community.
The money raised through Volksfest helps pay for flower baskets around town, holiday decor downtown and fountain maintenance. It also allows the Chamber to contribute to:
Mt. Angel Community Foundation
Father Bernard Youth Center
Habitat for Humanity
Mt. Angel School District
Jr. First scholarship
Tunnel to Towers
These are just a few examples of what the Chamber does with the money it earns at our various activities. We couldn’t do it without our volunteers and the residents of Mt Angel who come to support these events – so thank you so much for your support.
