PARKING AT THE HENRY FORD
For the sixth annual event, The Henry Ford has moved the Faire’s outdoor midway from the Henry Ford Museum parking lot to the Lovett Hall lot behind the museum. This new location provides guests more convenient parking opportunities and easier access to makers both inside and outside the museum. A shuttle service sponsored by the University of Michigan-Dearborn will also be available at its Fairlane campus at 19000 Hubbard Dr. in Dearborn.
- Henry Ford Museum – the Main Museum lot will be open to guests with expanded parking for physically challenged guests just outside the IMAX Theater entrance.
- Greenfield Village Lots – Parking in the Village Road lots across from Greenfield Village is available during the weekend. Please note that these lots fill up quickly each morning. If you are coming to Maker Faire at lunchtime and after, your best bet for parking are the lots off Oakwood or the offsite shuttle.
- Oakwood Blvd Lots – Parking is available directly across from and next to Maker Faire on Oakwood Blvd in the Ford Motor Company lots. Please follow the signs and adhere to the instructions of THF staff and the Dearborn Police Department.
- Expanded parking for the physically challenged is located near the IMAX Theatre entrance and at the Beech Street entrance off of Oakwood Blvd.
Our Maker Faire partners at the University of Michigan-Dearborn are providing offsite parking at the U-M Dearborn FAIRLANE CENTER Campus. The campus is at 19000 Hubbard Dr. in Dearborn. (this is not the Main Campus).
Free shuttles will operate from 9:30am to 6:30pm on both days of Maker Faire. THF attendants will be there to greet you. The shuttle drop off and pick up at The Henry Ford is in front of the Museum.
