Log Cabin Day, a free, family-friendly festival presented by People for Palmer Park, will celebrate history, music, theater, storytelling, and art. Palmer Park’s annual Log Cabin Day — which coincides with National Log Cabin Day — will be held in the beautiful outdoor setting next to the historic Palmer Park Log Cabin overlooking Lake Frances, as well as inside the Log Cabin. Dressing-up in vintage attire and hats from the 1800s-early 1900s is encouraged.

This beloved community event, held for the past decade, transforms the grounds of the Palmer Park Log Cabin with vibrancy, fun, and enrichment with a variety of activities and presenters, including:
