Welcome to Darp Day! This celebration of Mennonite culture in the darp (or “village” in Low-German) of Neubergthal is an annual event held by the Neubergthal Heritage Foundation.

We have an artisan market from 1pm-4pm, sessions on Mennonite cultural topics all throughout the day and a concert in the evening featuring Mennonite celebrities, Jess Reimer and Jeremy Hamm. There will be snacks and food straight from grandma’s kitchen or from across the globe. All NHF buildings will be open and there will be much more music throughout the village all afternoon. If you’re more familiar with “plautdietsch”, we also have sessions planned entirely in Low-German, a language created by Mennonites, and still spoken by some both locally and all over the globe.
