(Dearborn, MI – November 18, 2009) – Get back to basics this holiday season and celebrate the spirit of a classic Christmas during Holiday Nights in Greenfield Village, December 4-5, 11-12, 18-23 and 26-27, from 6:30-10 p.m. Ticket prices are $14.50 for adult members and $12.75 for youth members, $17 for adult non-members and $15 for youth non-members. Children four and under are free. To purchase tickets, call (313) 982-6001 or visit www.thehenryford.org.

In what has become a grand annual tradition, Holiday Nights turns Greenfield Village into an iconic holiday scene from the 19th and 20th centuries. Visitors and period-clothed presenters skate side-by-side on our ice rink, and lanterns light the paths toward historic homes filled with welcoming evergreen-filled parlors and the smell of freshly-baked holiday treats.

New this year is Supper with Santa, a family dining package unlike any other. A special ticket price combines dinner and Holiday Nights admission, and begins with a horse-drawn wagon ride to A Taste of History restaurant inside Greenfield Village. Enjoy a casual holiday turkey meal, arts and crafts and storytelling – and before heading into Holiday Nights, Santa himself will make a tableside visit to wish each child a Merry Christmas. Tickets for this unique experience are $37 for adult members and $28.25 for youth members ages 5-12, $39.50 for adult non-members and $30.50 for youth non-members. Tickets for all children ages four and under are $12.

Taste historically-inspired seasonal delights at several food stations, including hand-carved roast beef, warm winter fruit compote with sweetened cream, freshly-roasted hot chestnuts and hot apple cider and cocoa. Hear favorite holiday tunes echo through the air as Victorian-era carolers stroll through the village and the Dodworth Saxhorn Band serenades visitors down Main Street. Costumed holiday revelers, called mummers, bring laughter everywhere they go. For the end of the evening, purchase an official Holiday Nights lantern and join the procession from Martha-Mary Chapel to Town Hall for a festive caroling sing-along and fireworks finale in the crisp winter sky.

And of course, historic Eagle Tavern also offers an exclusive, sophisticated seated dinner package. Live period music sets the tone for a delectable holiday feast, featuring roasted rib of beef, squash soup, roasted chicken with apricot sauce, ginger cake with vanilla sauce and more. The dinner package, which is available every night of the program, offers 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. seating and includes admission to Holiday Nights in Greenfield Village. Tickets are $66 for adult members and $64.50 for youth members, $68.50 for adult non-members and $66.50 for youth non-members. To purchase tickets for both Supper with Santa and the Eagle Tavern dinner package, call (313) 982-6001 or visit www.thehenryford.org.
