Palmer Park is the perfect venue, not only because of the magnificent Italian Renaissance Merrill Fountain that is its center piece, but also because it’s central in every direction which makes it easy if you’re coming from downtown, the East or West sides or the northern suburbs.
The DGLP is a family oriented event that welcomes people of every persuasion to come together and enjoy a rousing day of 1920s themed festivities! Regardless of race, religion, gender, marital status or orientation, we are for EVERYONE!
Our focus is on fun as well as education, celebrating the music, dance and fashion of the 1920s and 30s, and including exhibits that touch on Detroit’s Jazz Age history.
The DGLP is brought to you by Pretty Bird, a Social Enterprise that donates 100% of the proceeds from our DGLP Speakeasy to a worthy cause. The beneficiaries they select are all organizations that make a direct impact on Detroit Neighborhoods. This year, People for Palmer Park will be the beneficiary.
Their intention is to grow the DGLP into a magnificent family event that becomes a jewel in the crown of Detroit and attracts attendees from all over the midwest!
