The fourth annual Delaware Days Festival, which is being hosted by the Victory Assembly of God in Newcomerstown, is a historically-themed outdoor event honoring both the bravery of Moravian missionaries and the faith of the native Delaware people who responded to the call to follow Christ. The festival is set for Sunday, Oct. 11.

A dramatic re-enactment of David Zeisberger's sermon to Delaware Chief Netawatwes (Newcomer) will be featured along with other historic demonstrations and colonial era re-enactors.

They are located within a half-mile of the site of the first protestant sermon given west of the Allegheny mountains.

There will be vendors selling their wares.
