Dearborn, MI – The Henry Ford is planning for the return of a summer favorite in Greenfield Village—Motor Muster on Father Day’s Weekend, June 19-20 with special evening hours that Saturday until 9 p.m. This long-running auto enthusiast event is powered by Hagerty, an automotive enthusiast brand and the global leader in collector car membership products and programs.
Adhering to current CDC Guidelines, The Henry Ford will reduce the number of vehicles—muscle cars, glamorous classics, motorcycles and bicycles representing the 1930s to the 1970s. Each display area will be roped and staked to maintain distances of six feet or more. The event will also keep the popular “Pass-in Review” parade on Main Street and Washington inside the Village.
By popular demand, immersive vignettes chronicling how pivotal points within our nation’s history influenced the automotive industry, will return with visitors able to enjoy collections representing the 1930sCivilian Conservation Corp; 1940s small town home front activities; 1950s suburban yard work, 1960s picnics and the 1976 Bicentennial.
NEW in 2021: Racing
This year’s feature celebrates the opening of The Henry Ford’s new exhibition, Driven to Win: Racing in America presented by General Motors, with a spotlight on auto racing. Americans love speed and spectacle. Whether it’s open-wheel competition at Indianapolis, super stock duels at the drag strip, or a 25-lap feature at the local dirt oval, racing stirs excitement – and sells cars. Automakers tout their victories and give their production cars racing-inspired names. Pontiac had the Bonneville, the LeMans and the Trans Am. Studebaker and Dodge both used Daytona, while Ford claimed Talladega. Chevrolet topped everyone, naming its entire brand for Swiss-American racing driver Louis Chevrolet. In 2021 we’ll remember the cars, the drivers and the tracks that made racing in America so special.
Live music on Saturday night will be performed by the 1970s cover band and local favorite, “Classic Gold.”
Motor Muster is free with membership or $28 for adults, $25.25 for seniors 62 and up and $21 for youth 3-11. Children two and under are free. Discounted tickets can be purchased at participating Meijer locations. For more information, visit www.thehenryford.org
