Palmer Park Detroit Harvest Festival
September 21, 2019
Are you ready to head to the park for complete family fun? Free family fun? More than a century ago, Senator Thomas Palmer and his wife Lizzie Merrill Palmer often invited guests to enjoy their Log Cabin Farm. They enjoyed sharing, the company of family & friends and drink freshly pressed apple cider, and the harvest. Palmer donated the land in the late 1800s to the city of Detroit to serve as a park “for the good of everyone.” And that’s just what it is. Good for everyone.
In honor of the harvest and in celebration of the Palmer legacy, the park will be filled with autumn festivities and free family fun during the Harvest Festival on September 21, 2019 from 1-4 p.m. This will be a fun for all ages to discover how our food is grown, the lives and health of farm animals, and outdoor fun.
Guests are invited to enjoy:
- Hayrides through the woods
- Apple Tasting
- Petting Zoo
- Much more!
The event takes place next to Palmer Park’s Splash Park and playground, on Merrill Plaisance near Pontchartrain, between McNichols and Seven Mile Roads, west of Woodward Avenue. Parking is available at the Splash Park parking lot. This event is presented by People for Palmer Park with the support of the City of Detroit. Special thanks to Home Depot for a grant and volunteers that made it possible to build the PFPP Educational Garden.
