Cane Hill Presbyterian Church Pavilion, 14265 College Road, Canehill, Ark.

Sponsored by:

Members and friends of the Cane Hill community are invited to attend a family-friendly, bring-your-own-picnic day at Historic Cane Hill on Sunday, April 2nd at 12:00 PM! Historic Cane Hill celebrates members of the local community and all their efforts to preserve the architectural, natural, and historical riches of Cane Hill.

Public Programs Manager at Historic Cane Hill, David Collins, emphasized, “We recognize the deep sense of place and history that most locals have and we are reminded every day of how invested and proud so many people are in this area. At Historic Cane Hill, we so appreciate the surrounding community and the support that we get from residents! So this is a chance for people with ties to Cane Hill , whether old or new, to come together and just have fun in the place we all love.”

The picnic will be held at the Pavilion on the Presbyterian Church lawn and will last until 3:00 PM. A limited number of tables and chairs will be available in the HCH Pavilion on the church lawn, but visitors are strongly encouraged to bring picnic blankets and chairs. Dessert items and drinks will be provided. Participants should bring their own ready-to-eat family picnic. No methods of cooking will be available onsite the day of the event, so attendees should pre-grill, pre-bake, and otherwise pre-assemble their food! Canine family members are also welcome to attend, but HCH asks that any pets be leashed while on campus and care be taken to keep the grounds clean. 

Picnickers will also be able to play lawn games, win prizes, hike the trails, learn about opportunities to volunteer, participate in a sitewide scavenger hunt, color Historic Cane Hill coloring sheets, decorate  with sidewalk chalk, and more! Students from the Roots Music mentoring program at Inside Out Studio in Farmington, sponsored by HCH and led by Jacob Paul, will also play music throughout the day. The Museum, Gallery, and Presbyterian Church will all be open to visitors beginning at 1:00 pm. 

The Historic Cane Hill Presbyterian Church is located at 14265 College Rd, Canehill, AR 72717. Parking will be available at the College building and in the field along College Road across from the College building. The picnic begins at 12:00 PM and lasts until 3:00 PM, with building openings at 1:00 PM. All members of the Cane Hill area community are invited to attend!
