Near Portland this isn't a festival with specific dates but a business with an amazing maze, events and fall fun.
Mt. Angel Oktoberfest
While just a couple days before it is officially fall, Oktoberfest was traditionally during the fall. This is a very popular Oktoberfest so you need to get tickets as soon as they come out, especially if you want to camp.
Sisters Folk Festival
If you love folk music, this is the festival for you. They have 7 stages of music, so there is always something to choose from. They also have a raffle and auction and some workshops led by the artists themselves. With 33+ unique artists participating you will find something that will peak your interest.

I know this isn't a festival, but it is a group of people getting together to run and enjoy the fall colors. So, if running is your thing then definitely check out Oregon's best half marathon to enjoy the fall foliage: The Columbia Gorge Marathon and Half Marathon.
Enjoy the fall!
