Deutsch Country Days is located on historic “Luxenhaus Farm,” three miles northeast of Marthasville, MO on Highway O (map on website) only an hour west of St Louis.

Observe 80+ juried artisans in traditional period costumes demonstrating early 1700-1850s German Pioneer Missouri folkways and life skills, as well as 1720s Osage Native American skills and culture. An 1840s  pioneer log home, featured in many national magazines, can be toured along with 35 reconstructed Missouri log cabins, circa 1800-1890, all rescued from demise from throughout the state.

Take a stroll through the Eric Sloane covered bridge and enjoy candle-dipping, soap-making, weaving, woodworking, Klopolei, Scherenschnitte and much more.  Visitors can interact with more than 80 historical juried artisans and demonstrators-leaving them with a truly educational and family-oriented day.
Traditional German meals will tempt the palette while period music wafts through the Missouri valley.  Deutsch Country Days was selected by “USA Today” as one of the top 10 food festivals in the nation.
