Take a lantern-lit journey into a living snow globe filled with live music, skating, fireworks and tons of winter wonder during America’s premier celebration of the season.

Holiday Nights in Greenfield Village is like stepping into a Christmas card from the past — the golden glow from candlelit windows, the scent of roasting chestnuts, the sound of carolers in the distance, the jangle of sleigh bells. This is how the holidays are supposed to be. No wonder Holiday Nights has become the most popular holiday event in the region. Where else will you find lantern-lit paths, costumed presenters, horse-drawn wagons and Model T rides, plus Santa with live reindeer. It’s perfect, right down to the spectacular fireworks display that provides a dazzling finale to each and every evening. Holiday Nights in Greenfield Village is America’s premier holiday celebration!

Civil War Remembrance
May 23-25, 2015 (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 of 1864, the turning point and final full year of the war. 1864 witnessed Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant’s Overland Campaign against Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, the fall of Atlanta and Gen. William Sherman’s subsequent March to the Sea, and the Richmond-Petersburg Campaign, a series of battles that led to Lee's surrender.

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 13 - August 23, 2015 (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 13, 2015 (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 20-21, 2015 (Open Saturday 'til 9pm)
Make your way to a vintage auto enthusiast’s dream destination: From glamorous classics of the 1930s to brawny muscle cars of the 1970s, Greenfield Village hosts more than 500 gleaming examples.

Motor Muster celebrates one of the grandest and most innovative eras of American automotive history — 1933-1976. 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 cruise, too, and a live early 1960s dance show with dancing in the streets ’til 9pm. A one-of-a-kind event for cars and the people who love them.
Summer Discovery Camps
Six 1-week sessions from June 22 - August 7, 2015 (9am to 4pm daily, Extended Care is available.)
Imagine having the entire campus of The Henry Ford as your own personal playground. Science, games, hiking, inventors, tours, fishing, robotics – even a chance to perform green experiments. The Henry Ford’s Summer Discovery Camps offer a broad and well-rounded schedule for the kid who is inquisitive, adventurous and filled with boundless energy. Programs are grade-specific for grades 2-9. Discounted pricing for members of The Henry Ford.

More Information about Discovery Camp 2015 coming soon. Check back. Registration begins February 24, 2015, for members and March 24, 2015, for non-members.
Salute to America
July 1-4, 2015 (6-10pm)
A classic Independence Day celebration with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra that’s as full of freedom-loving fanfare as they come.

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. But the centerpiece of each evening is a joint concert by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the United States Army Field Band, Concert Band and Soldiers’ Chorus, the premier touring musical representatives of the United States Army. Stick around for the grand finale, the DSO playing Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, featuring authentic cannon fire and a spectacular fireworks display accompanied by live patriotic music.

Tickets go on sale beginning April 22, 2015.
Ragtime Street Fair
July 11-12, 2015 (Open Saturday 'til 9pm)
Savor an American musical original at our newest signature event — Ragtime Street Fair. For one whirlwind of a weekend, we revel in that seductively syncopated music that we know as ragtime! There’s music everywhere you turn. You can learn to dance the one-step or listen to pianos cranking out the hits of the era. Better yet, you can find a comfy seat and listen to live performances by some of the modern-day stars of ragtime, including Taslimah Bey, "Perfessor" Bill Edwards, John Remmers, River Raisin Ragtime Revue and Jerry Perrine. It’s sassy, jazzy, hot and live. When you’re ready for a rest, stop and snack on fresh hot buttered corn, Greenfield Village Cherry Chicken Sausage slathered with our very own red onion marmalade and a truly decadent summer treat — hot fried dough doused with creamy ice cream. And to take advantage of those exquisite long summer nights, we’ll stay open until 9 pm Saturday.
World Tournament of Historic Base Ball®
August 8-9, 2015
Experience the original passion of America’s national pastime! Catch the world’s greatest exhibition of historic base ball live in Greenfield Village.

It’s a championship like no other. Every summer, we commemorate Detroit’s 1867 World Base Ball Tournament with a gathering of teams that play America’s game by those long-ago rules. It is unquestionably the nation’s greatest two-day exposition of historic base ball. This is as good and as pure as America’s pastime gets. Gloves optional. Gentlemanly play always expected. No designated hitters. Don’t worry, though. We still have pitchers and batters and home runs. And for two days, we also have game after game of thrill-a-minute base ball until finally, just one team is left. The World Champions. Add some live period music, food and a bit of drama, and you’ve got a memorable weekend made for the diehard sports fan. It’s base ball as you’ve never seen it before.
