Antique automobiles, 1,000 hand-carved jack-o-lanterns, fall traditions and
so much more, happen only at The Henry Ford. The fun continues this fall
with the return of Old Car Festival, powered by Hagerty, Hallowe’en in
Greenfield Village presented by Meijer, and the opening of a brand-new
temporary exhibition inside Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation.
After a year’s absence, America’s longest-running antique car show, Old Car
Festival powered by Hagerty, returns to Greenfield Village, September 11-12.
This year’s event celebrates Women at the Wheel, showcasing how early
automobiles supported women in making inroads in American life. Tickets for
nonmembers are available for purchase now.
Beginning October 7th and taking place during select evenings in October,
Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village continues its 2020 format, allowing guests
to stroll the event at their own pace. New this year, programming will
transition from a family-friendly harvest-themed atmosphere complete with
Fall Flavor Weekend elements during daylight hours, to the traditional
Hallowe’en atmosphere at night. The popular Hallowe’en Express, also
introduced last year, is back for more thrills and chills in 2021. Member
tickets go on sale Wednesday, September 1st with public tickets on sale the
week after on Wednesday, September 8th.
To best support fall programming, Greenfield Village will close to the
public on Sunday, October 3. Beginning October 7th, it reopens for
Members-Only Strolling Days. Every Thursday-Sunday in October from 9:30 a.m.
to 3 p.m., members have access to the historic destination with limited
programs and amenities available. Public operating hours start again
Friday-Sunday in November, beginning November 5.
Following the success of The Jim Henson Exhibit: Imagination Unlimited,
closing on Sept. 6, Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation will welcome a
temporary exhibition centered around its recent acquisitions in mobility.
The new exhibit runs Oct. 22, 2021 to Jan. 2, 2022. More details on the new
exhibition to come. For updates on hours, tickets and more, visit thf.org or
