2021 Oktoberfest Update

As we have all seen in recent weeks, instances of COVID-19 and its variants are on the rise in Oregon. As such, Oaks Park management has decided that the best course of action is to postpone our annual Oktoberfest celebration to 2022. It is with a heavy heart that we came to the decision to cancel the 2021 event, but in light of the following factors, we feel that it is the responsible thing to do:

  • Our primary concern is for the health and safety of festival-goers, employees, vendors, and performers.
  • The situation is too uncertain with respect to the financial obligations of the Oaks Park Association and our promoters, vendors, and performers.
  • The essence of Oktoberfest centers around people gathering on dance floors and sitting in the Festhalle for extended periods of time without masks while they consume food and drinks and sing along to live music. The festival's brand could be damaged with toned-down festivities.
  • Safety precautions like wearing masks or keeping a distance are hard to enforce in a Festhalle environment.

  • Thank you so much for your understanding and we will be looking forward to resuming our Oktoberfest fun with you in 2022!

Save the date - Oktoberfest 2022 will be September 23-25!
