Parish Fair – City Festival – Museum Night

Ever since 2017, guests have been invited to join in the celebrations on the first weekend of October to mark Martin Luther’s consecration of the castle chapel in Torgau as the first Protestant church.

The people of Torgau have organised a city festival in October with a fun fair and vibrant market activities to celebrate the anniversary of the castle church. Impressive illuminations in and around the castle church attracted lots of visitors to the festivals in 2017 (artist Ingo Bracke), 2018 and 2019 (artist Jürgen Meier).

Due to the 1050th anniversary of the city, the festival takes place in mid-September and, together with many other events, forms the end of a festival week.
