About Denmark Heritage Days

Antique Tractors, Classic Cars, Gas Engines, BBQ Competition, Quilts, Crafts, and More! There is something for everyone in Denmark's Star Park during Denmark Heritage Days!

Celebrate our History!  Denmark was home to the Academy which received its charter from the Iowa Territorial Legislature in 1843.  The Academy held its first classes in 1846 in the wooden congregational church.  In 1848, the board decided to built a two-story building, which was completed in 1850.  A large frontal addition was added in 1866.  It was the first four-year educational institution of its kind west of the Mississippi and attracted many families to Denmark.


Denmark, Iowa was first settled in June of 1836.  It is home to the first congregational church west of the Mississippi River.  It was first built from wood in 1845-1846.  The present church was built inside the wooden walls.  It is now built from brick made locally in a kiln at Lost Creek on the Woodroffe Farm. 


From early on, the church was strongly anti-slavery, and Denmark became an important stop on the Underground Railroad. 


Our heritage is rich in strong characters, brave settlers and proud farmers.  Join us the first weekend in June for fun-filled activities for the whole family!
