The Daniel Webster Estate is hosting the first Family Fun Day since 2019! With activities ranging from touch-a-truck to pony rides, this exciting event is sure to be a hit with the whole family.
Family Fun Day 2022The Daniel Webster Estate

Sadly, just weeks before the 12th annual Family Fun Day, Mrs. Phyllis Neilsen, the event's treasured founder, passed away on July 7, 2022. This year the festival falls on what would have been Mrs. Neilsen's 87th birthday. The Webster DWPT "voted unanimously to rename the event in her honor, Phyllis Nielsen’s Family Fun Day."

At this year's event, the color red will "be prevalent throughout the day as Phyllis will always be remembered for her smile and red lipstick."
