The annual event had become the largest folk festival of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, drawing more than 300,000 visitors a year.
The festival always has been a family event. The first Oktoberfest featured arts and crafts exhibits, an automobile race sponsored by the Porsche Club of America, a performance by the Bavarian Dancers of Portland, and a bicycle race.
It is a wonderful blend of family fun, music, food and beer.
