This year COHO has reserved a charter bus to take members to this fantastic event. The bus will pick us up at a central location in Bend, and take us directly to the event. It will then pick us up later that evening, and return us back to our original pick up location. The cost for a seat on the charter bus to/from Mount Angel is only $38.
It is approximately a 2 3/4 hour drive to Mount Angel, but luckily there will be a keg of beer on-board! The bus will leave Bend promptly at 8:30am, and return by 10:00pm the same day.
Tickets for entry into the Mount Angel Oktoberfest are currently on sale here for $10. A day’s ticket also includes access to their shuttle bus which runs frequently to the Mount Angel Abbey. With any luck their Benedictine Brewery will be open by then. Check out the brewery information here.
A one-day chartered trip for only $38 (plus Oktoberfest admission, of course) is a great deal, and you have today and tomorrow to pick up a seat—just go to the COHO page and hit the Paypal link.
