Salute To America

In partnership with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, The Henry Ford proudly presents Salute to America in Greenfield Village.

Begin your evening by walking through Greenfield Village at your own pace while listening to musical ensembles perform across the venue. At dusk, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra takes center stage on the Village Green for a triumphant musical performance in celebration of Independence Day. The evening ends with a stirring “1812” Overture performance, cannon fire and a brilliant fireworks finale.

Join us and take in the unique atmosphere of Greenfield Village at night. Enjoy your favorite summer treat as you stroll and listen to performance groups across the village, each showcasing a diverse assembly of music from American history, including choral singing, ragtime, jazz and more. Grab a blanket, get comfortable and take a seat on the Village Green for a three-part grand finale, including a full Detroit Symphony Orchestra performance.

An exuberant collection of songs, food and fanfare connects families, friends and neighbors to honor the great American experiment. We invite you to a Fourth of July celebration unlike any other at Salute to America.
