There is something about fall weekends, with the cooler weather and the beautiful img_3657changing colors of the trees, that makes one want to get outside. And, if you love history, and the stories of the early German immigrants then you will want to visit Deutsch Country Days located on the Luxenhaus Farm (18055 State Highway O) near Marthasville, Missouri. The once-a-year living history that demonstrates the folkways and skills of the early Germans in Missouri is open for its’ 35th year on October 15 & 16th, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. You will find me on the front porch of the Huber Haus, which was built in the 1830s. I’ll be sharing the history of the farm, the Germans and the German Heritage Corridor.
October is the month when you can almost find an Oktoberfest around every corner. Here are some other events happening in Missouri that you may find interesting! We hope that you are able to attend some of these very interesting programs.
We thank all of our partners and everyone who attended our programs, followed our blog, joined our tours, subscribed to our journal or participated in any of our various activities. You helped make this the best year ever for the Missouri Germans Consortium! Thank you! Stay tuned for a fantastic 2016!
This is an event for the entire family, and a demonstration of history that you will never forget. (And a photographer’s dream!) The beautiful hillside comes alive just once a year! Don’t miss your chance to visit Deutsch Country Days.
