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, the 4th of July parade and fireworks show, holiday decor downtown, student scholarships and fountain maintenance. It also allows the Chamber to contribute to many non-profit donation requests, youth sports & clubs and more.
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.
