Must-See Events
Tinker. Hack. Invent. Saturdays
Every Saturday, every month (10am - 3pm)
It’s a weekly celebration of American ingenuity. We call it Tinker. Hack. Invent. and it takes place every Saturday. Join our Tinker Task Force and have a blast trying your hand at all sorts of things. Americans are famous for their ingenuity and resourcefulness, for their eagerness to improve and explore new ideas. This is your chance to learn firsthand how that spirit is alive and well today. Come explore your own ingenuity. Try your hand at something new, something different. The activities change month to month. Hands-on. How-to, DIY, science and more! The only limitation is your imagination. And it’s free* with museum admission or membership.

*Some supply fees may apply.
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.
Roadside America
June 20, 2015 - January 24, 2016
John Margolies has spent decades photographing the quirks and ingenuity of America’s roadside architecture. Margolies doesn’t play favorites, whether he’s shooting a masterful Art Deco movie theater on a quiet main street or a motel with an oddball theme. His greatest admiration and affection are reserved for those entrepreneurial spirits of small-town America as they try to stand out in an increasingly mobile and commercialized environment.

This recently acquired collection documents a form of architecture and design and advertising that’s very homespun. There’s humor, there’s quirkiness. Margolies was willing to look at architecture and details that other people didn’t take seriously and at times didn’t even notice. There’s an emotional resonance that ties to fundamental aspects of American culture. The Henry Ford is acknowledging that and celebrating it.

Quirky. Creative. Fascinating. Take a drive down the byways and back roads of America.
Only at Henry Ford Museum. Limited engagement. Dates subject to change.
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.
Maker Faire Detroit
July 25-26, 2015 (9:30am - 6pm)
Maker Faire is like a three-ring circus of innovation. Robotics, electronics, rockets, food, music, fashion, science — if somebody makes it, we’ll find a place for it at Maker Faire Detroit. This is, without doubt, one of the most unusual and mind-boggling events to ever find a home in Detroit. Maker Faire is a place where the DIY mindset can run wild. Inspiring and ingenious, with more than a little humor mixed in, this eye-popping gathering is one of the country’s smartest and most extraordinary family-friendly events. Hundreds of exhibiting makers are expected to participate, offering dozens of demonstrations and hands-on workshops for anyone — child or adult — who still has a sense of adventure. Only at the home of innovation, The Henry Ford.
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.
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.
