DUI Patrols increased for Mt. Angel Oktoberfest (Photo) - 09/11/19

This year marks the 54th year of the Mt. Angel Oktoberfest. The festival kicks off September 12th and runs through the 15th. “People come from all over the U.S. and enjoy the authenticity of the German Festival,” said Monica Bochsler – Public Relations Director for Mt. Angel Oktoberfest.

The Sheriff’s Office encourages everyone to be safe and do not drink and drive. Deputies will be out on the roadways promoting traffic safety. As part of this effort, more deputies will be in the area looking for drunk and impaired drivers during this 4-day event.

The additional patrols during this and many other summer events are funded by grants obtained from our partner agencies at the Oregon State Sheriff’s Association and the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Remember, as you make plans for Oktoberfest this year, don’t forget the designated driver!
