SHUTTLE  – Most convenient parking option

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.


Parking is $6 per vehicle for non-members. Pricing subject to change

  • Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation – The Main Museum lot will be open for accessible parking just outside the Welcome Center 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, use 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 The Henry Ford staff and the Dearborn Police Department.

Please note: Beginning early June 2018, the City of Dearborn will be working on a construction project on Oakwood Boulevard just south of The Henry Ford. This project will run between Beaumont Hospital and the Dearborn Inn, reducing Oakwood Boulevard from five lanes to two lanes, one in each direction. Currently this project is scheduled to conclude Labor Day weekend 2018.

The shuttle service sponsored by the University of Michigan-Dearborn is a good alternative for Maker Faire weekend.
