WinterFest is a free annual community event that encourages families to
visit and enjoy the beauty of Detroit's Palmer Park during the colder months.
Senator Thomas W. Palmer's home, built in 1885, is a rare gem lovingly
being restored by PFPP and the city of Detroit. Decorated for the
holidays, the Log Cabin — a Victorian home disguised as a rustic cabin —
will be transformed with the magic of the season as we celebrate
diverse holidays treasured in Detroit and around the world.
Bring your whole family for an afternoon of old-fashioned holiday fun at
WinterFest, a multi-cultural holiday festival at the historic Log
Cabin. Enjoy Christmas magic with Santa and Mrs. Claus, horse and
carriage rides through the woods (suggested donation $5per adult or family, $2 per child),
sweets, treats and hot cocoa, holiday ornament making and music as well
as Hanukkah with the Downtown Synagogue and Kwanzaa with the Wright
Museum of African American History.
