Must-See Events
Old Car Festival
September 6-7, 2014 (Open Saturday 'til 9pm)
Rev it up with hundreds of authentic vehicles from the 1890s through 1932 at America’s longest-running antique car show. Open ’til 9pm on Saturday night!

For one weekend a year, we celebrate the triumphs of the earliest years of the automotive industry. It is a glorious spectacle, as the streets and grounds of Greenfield Village fill with the sights, sounds and smells of hundreds of authentic vehicles made from the 1890s through 1932. Wander through the village and talk to owners about their treasured vehicles. Watch drivers engage in games of skill, see a Model T assembled in just minutes, or just sit back and enjoy our experts sharing "car talks" while historic vehicles parade past. There’s the Saturday Gaslight Tour, too, and a live orchestra performing favorite dance tunes of the 1920s ’til 9pm. A one-of-a-kind event for cars and the people who love them.

Fall Flavor Weekends
September 27-28 & October 4-5, 2014
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).
