By default logs are kept until they reach a pre-determined size, once you exceed the limit then the older events are purged to make way for newer events. Once there gone, there gone.
You can specify the size of the log and how they behave. You can do this on an individual log or via a group policy

you need to set the amount of logs to be stored and behaviour once they get full.
Set a higher amout of space and manually save the logs so that you can review them later if required. (see attached)

since event log files  automatically deletes  records try creating  a  batch  file  (set  to be run  daily)  that  will  dump the event logs   automatically   using the tool below:
