Celebrate the red, white and blue at this 21st annual patriotic fest when it returns to The Henry Ford July 3-6, 2013

Kick off your Fourth of July weekend the right way – at Greenfield Village for the 21st Annual Salute to America, which takes place July 3-6, 2013.

This festival, which begins at 6 p.m. and runs till 10 p.m. each day, is packed with tons of fun for the whole family, including 19th-century lawn games, music and delicious food from the chefs at The Henry Ford.

There will be music from the 1st Michigan Colonial Fife and Drum Corps led by Mark Logsdon; they will play some pre-concert tunes. The wee ones are sure to love the 19th-century lawn games – and a special appearance from Greenfield Village's historic baseball team.

The Detroit Symphony Orchestra, led by Leonard Slatkin, will provide you with great entertainment. The prelude concert will feature the River Raisin Ragtime Revue, with musical direction by William Pemberton.

Don't miss out on the spectacular fireworks display accompanied by Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture – complete with cannon fire!

Make sure you keep the kiddos happy all day by dressing them in comfortable clothing and walking shoes! Don't forget to bring your lawn chairs or a blanket to sit on during the concerts.
