Local Roots Blues, Brews & Evening Dining BBQ
August 14, 2015 (6:30pm-9pm, Dinner 7pm) in Greenfield Village Pavilion
BBQ. Barbecue. Barbeque. No matter how you spell it, this is an extraordinary one-night-only backyard-style event in the heart of Greenfield Village! The food — all of it locally sourced culinary — is the focus, but you can also enjoy a refreshing Michigan beer. All the while you’ll be listening or dancing to the great sounds of the Front Street Blues Band. Prepared by our award-winning culinary staff, this locally sourced culinary adventure pays tribute to the farmers and regional food producers supported by The Henry Ford’s Local Roots food initiatives.

The Greenfield Village Pavilion is open for your arrival beginning at 6:30pm. Dinner service will start promptly at 7pm. Guests 21 and older will be given 2 drink tickets to use at the bar. Full cash bar available. Summer dining tickets are nonrefundable and nontransferable.

Fall Flavor Weekends
September 26-27 & October 3-4, 2015
If you love to eat, you’ll love Greenfield Village’s Fall Flavor Weekends. Come celebrate the glories of traditional American food from farm to table, share in cooking demonstrations and browse the delights at our Saturday Local Roots Farmers Market.

You don’t have to be a foodie to enjoy Greenfield Village’s Fall Flavor Weekends. You just have to love to eat. Each weekend, several of our historic homes will host cooking demonstrations. At Firestone Farm, for instance, you’ll learn the secrets of a 19th-century meal of ham noodles, apples and onions with southern cabbage and Irish potatoes. Over at the Susquehanna Plantation, they’ll prepare a crab gumbo, along with sauerkraut baked with apples, ginger biscuits and cherry pudding. If all that food talk gets you hungry, then stop at the Village Store where they’ll be offering free tastings of our Greenfield Village specialty foods. When you’re ready for a break from all that food, wander outside and wonder at the demonstrations of century-old threshing techniques and plowing with steam and horses.

Saturday, October 4th, is Gleaner Day at The Henry Ford. Gleaner Life Insurance Society will be onsite hosting a food drive to benefit Gleaner Community Food Bank. Donate five nonperishable items and receive a coupon for one free admission to Greenfield Village with the purchase of one admission (offer valid Saturday, October 4th only).
