People for Palmer Park (PFPP) presents two intimate concerts in the historic 1880's Palmer Park Log Cabin — a late afternoon event from 4-6 pm and a twilight event from 7-9 pm. The musical celebrations commemorate the unveiling of extensive restorations of Senator and Mrs. Palmer's Log Cabin and its newly restored stained glass windows. The events include a tour of the cabin and reception with wine and refreshments.
Integrity Shows is reinventing the art fair and reviving a wonderful event from the 1970s and 1980s, while giving Detroit its only large outdoor juried art fair. Installations, street art and demonstrations mix with artists' booths and the park's trees and beauty. We are active partners with People for Palmer Park and encourage local business and residents' involvement in our art fair.
People for Palmer Park presents its free annual Harvest Festival with hayrides through the historic woods; apple tasting, petting zoo, arts and crafts and games for children, and much more. This will be a fun opportunity for all ages to learn about how our food is grown, the lives of farm animals, and nature in the park.
Log Cabin Day June 25, 2017 Take a peek! Once a year, for Michigan Log Cabin Day, People for Palmer Park opens the doors of Palmer Park’s 1880's Log Cabin — Detroit’s only authentic log cabin — for a rare tour. Visitors each year have been treated to a day of old-fashioned ice cream socials, live music, square dancing, blacksmithing, hat-making and parade/contests, prize raffles, Civil War camp, and an afternoon of family fun that will reconnect people of all ages to early Detroit memories and history, and aspirations for continued revival.
Each winter, one of Detroit’s most beautiful winter playgrounds, Palmer Park, is filled with magical fun, cold-weather recreation, and a delightful array of animals for its Annual WinterFest and Doggie Fashion Parade.
Dogs of all shapes and sizes strut their stuff around Lake Frances, wrapped in scarves, cloaks, hats, sunglasses and all manner of creative and fashionable attire to win wonderful treats for themselves and prizes for their owners.
