Our Experience:  

Last year, my husband and I attended Salute to America at Greenfield Village. This was our first time going to this event and we enjoyed it so much that we can’t wait to go again this year! Salute to America began 25 years ago and it continues to be a favorite Fourth of July event for many families. 

Salute to America begins at 6 p.m. with pre-shows such as the fife and drum parade and music by the United States Army Field Band. Seating is not provided, so all attendees must bring their own lawn chairs or blankets. We choose to bring lawn chairs as they provide more comfort for us. Food is available for purchase, but you are also welcome to bring your own food into the village. Last year, we picked up submarine sandwiches to eat along with some other snacks and beverages. All coolers, bags, wagons, and strollers are checked at the front gate and alcoholic beverages are not allowed. Beer and wine are available for purchase inside the village.

The highlights of Salute to America include the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) and the fireworks finale. There is a little downtime before the main event, so be prepared to talk with family and friends, eat dinner, walk around the village, play games or cards, people watch, or just relax. Once the DSO begins, you won’t want to miss the show!
