President Polk Birthday Celebration
Our annual celebration of President James K. Polk’s birthday is one of our largest events throughout the year! Join us for historic games, crafts, and living history throughout the grounds of the site. Savor the smells from the fire as the Historical Cooking Guild of the Catawba Valley cooks up a birthday meal, watch as the Catawba Valley Fiber Guild turn tufts of fiber into beautiful hand-spun yarn. All proceeds raised from this the event go to the Friends of the Polk Birthplace (www.jameskpolk.net) a non profit, 501 (c)(3) that supports the educational mission of the museum. Check our website and social media pages for updates on this special event!
