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.
THIS YEAR'S FESTIVITIES WILL BE HELD OUTSIDE THE LOG CABIN. MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING ENCOURAGED.
