*Disclosure: I will be receiving tickets to this event in exchange for this blog post. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.

Salute to America will return this year to Greenfield Village, from Friday, June 30th through Monday, July 3rd.

I have yet to attend this event, so I'm excited to attend this year! I love the DSO, as well, and they are involved in the concerts, as well as the Jazz Ambassadors of the U.S. Army Field Band.

More info about the event:
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) will return to Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford for Salute to America, a classic family-friendly Independence Day celebration. This year’s concerts mark the 25th anniversary of this Metro Detroit tradition and unique partnership between two cultural institutions.

Tickets are on sale now for the four nights of performances, which will take place on Friday, June 30, Saturday, July 1, Sunday, July 2, and Monday, July 3. Please see below for ticket information.

DSO Associate Conductor Michelle Merrill will lead the concerts, which take place in the Walnut Grove Historic District of Greenfield Village. The Jazz Ambassadors of the United States Army Field Band, the premier touring musical representatives of the United States Army, will also perform, sharing the stage with the DSO.


The concert grounds open to patrons starting at 6 p.m. each night. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, picnics, and lawn chairs to enjoy patriotic music, outdoor activities, and summer fun. Everyone’s favorite finale—Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture—will be accompanied by cannons and followed by fireworks.

The 1st Michigan Colonial Fife and Drum Corps will parade the concert grounds at 6:45 p.m. The Jazz Ambassadors of the United States Army Field Band will give a pre-concert performance at 7:30, before joining the DSO for the main concert, which begins at 8:30.

Tickets to Salute to America at Greenfield Village range from $13.25 – $75. Tickets may be purchased at thehenryford.org/salute or by calling (313) 982-6001. Children aged 2 and under are admitted for free.
