Civil War Remembrance
May 28-30, 2016 (Open Saturday 'til 9pm)
Feel the Civil War come alive all around you as bustling camps, cavalry and period music enliven an entire weekend filled with reenacted events.

Before we immerse ourselves in summer pleasures, we stop to recall the 3 million people who fought in America’s Civil War and the estimated 750,000 people who died — the equivalent of 7.5 million dead today.

This year marks the sesquicentennial, the surrender of Gen. Robert E. Lee and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, both in April 1865. The joy of the end of the war and the ensuing peace were quickly dampened by an assassin’s bullet at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C., causing the nation to mourn.

This weekend in Greenfield Village, hundreds of Union and Confederate reenactors, civilians, musicians and historic presenters — all in period clothing — converge, eager to share their knowledge with you. There are dozens of opportunities to learn more about this pivotal time in American history: exhibits, presentations, battle tactics demonstration, hands-on activities and insights from historians.

Please join us in honoring the sacrifices and achievements of all those who bravely fought and continue to fight in defense of our great nation. The Henry Ford will participate in a national moment of silence at 3 pm Monday as signaled by the Armington & Sims shop whistle.
Historic Base Ball Games
Every Saturday & Sunday June 11 - August 21, 2016 (First pitch 1:30pm)
We think our games are as good as America’s pastime gets. We play by the rules of 1867. Gloves optional, but certainly not preferred. No designated hitters, either, or domed stadiums. We still have pitchers and batters and home runs. But this is thrill-a-minute base ball in the glorious outdoors. Our grandstand is a grassy hillside shaded by dozens of massive walnut trees. We have live, 19th-century music by the Dodworth Saxhorn Band. And every so often, a Greenfield Village passenger train pulled by a 19th-century steam locomotive chugs along the perimeter of the outfield. It’s classic. This is the way we like it. Stop by a game and enter to win Detroit Tigers tickets.
National Get Outdoors Day in Greenfield Village
June 11, 2016 (10am – 4pm)
Join our historic forest ranger for a day of one-of-a-kind outdoor activities. Hikes. Barn tours. And a hands-on exploration of our environment. For all ages.

It’s summer — time to get out of the house! Come to Greenfield Village for National Get Outdoors Day. With the help of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Forest Service, this annual event encourages healthy, active outdoor fun. We have a full schedule of activities planned: an environmental program in the Village Pavilion, an afternoon nature hike, presentations by our historic forest ranger on horseback. We also open up the usually closed William Ford Horse Barn for tours, as well as offer a wide range of hands-on activities. So come to Greenfield Village and enjoy the out-of-doors.
Motor Muster
June 18-19, 2016 (Open Saturday 'til 9pm)
Make your way to a vintage auto enthusiast’s dream destination as Motor Muster celebrates one of the grandest and most innovative eras of American automotive history: From glamorous classics of the 1930s to brawny muscle cars of the 1970s, Greenfield Village hosts more than 500 gleaming examples.

Motor Muster 2015, celebrates the iconic Pontiac GTO and the rise of the muscle car. By 1965, the American pony car had made its glorious debut in the form of the Ford Mustang. Though technically not a totally new concept, a whole new breed of American-made two-door coupes equipped with “power plants” designed for “straight line” speed began to make their debut; the rise of the American muscle car. General Motors lead this change with the Pontiac GTO, yet their competitors at Ford and Chrysler were not far behind. This need for speed raced its way through the rest of the 1960s and into the early 1970s when a combination of regulations and a fuel embargo put a screeching halt to the heyday of American muscle.

For the entire weekend, the streets and lawns of Greenfield Village will be filled with hundreds of classic cars, vintage trucks, motorcycles, military vehicles, bicycles — even a fire engine or two. They’ll all be here, from brawny muscle cars to the straight-out-of-the-showroom cars you and your parents grew up with. Stroll the grounds and meet the owners who lavish attention on these wonders of rolling history. There’s the Saturday night, 1960s dance show with dancing in the streets ’til 9pm. A one-of-a-kind event for cars and the people who love them.

Salute to America
June 30 - July 1-3, 2016 (6-10pm)

July Fourth is the quintessential American holiday. What better occasion for a four-day party? Picnics, games and festive holiday food from our award-winning culinary staff. Plenty of activities for kids, too.
