What’s the most enchanting, nostalgic and fantastical Halloween adventure? It’s The Henry Ford’s Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village, Michigan's premier outdoor October celebration.

From harvest markets and fall themes to costumed storybook characters and ghostly performances, our 42-year Hallowe’en tradition is one of a kind, showcased within the bewitching setting of after-hours Greenfield Village.

Hosted over 16 evenings in October, Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village is formatted for guests to stroll through the village at their own pace, picking and choosing their own festive or frightful experience. Back by popular demand, the Hallowe’en Express will return to its haunted tracks, taking riders along a ghoulish, surprising journey through Greenfield Village. Tickets for Hallowe’en Express will be available to purchase online for a small additional fee.

Programming from Fall Flavor Weekends will be integrated into the program's daytime hours for a family-friendly, harvest-themed atmosphere, transitioning into our traditional spooky Hallowe’en atmosphere as twilight falls.

We continue to be committed to creating a magical Hallowe’en experience for our members, friends and fans, and we invite you to join us for another year of Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village.
