Welcome to Luther Days

The Luther Days Festival is a one-of-a-kind event for the entire family that brings Martin Luther and our Lutheran heritage to life by offering participants a uniquely interactive and distinctly Lutheran experience. Enjoy family fun while reliving history. This hands-on exploration embraces our Lutheran heritage throughout the centuries beginning with the Reformation and ending with Lutheranism in the world today.
 
Stroll through time and relive our Lutheran history by tasting the foods, listening to the music, shopping the merchants, meeting the locals, debating the theologians, learning the languages, embracing the culture, and studying the scriptures.

The event is divided into centuries. Choose the century where you want to begin exploring and then walk either backwards or forwards in time.
 
16th Century – Reformation and Doctrinal Disputes
17th Century – The Age of Orthodoxy
18th Century -  The Birth of Lutheran “Synods”
19th Century – Lutherans Throughout the World
20th Century – Lutherans United or Divided
21st Century – The Future of Lutheranism
 

Reformation Brought to Life

The life of Martin Luther is one of the most fascinating people in the history of Christianity: parental conflict, spiritual agony, life-changing moments, princes, popes, emperors, castles, kidnapping, mobs, revolution, massacres, politics, courage, controversy, disguises, daring escapes, humor and romance.
