Mount Vernon invites visitors to an unforgettable evening experience! Sunset Celebration at Mount Vernon, an event over Memorial Day weekend, offers a rare opportunity to visit Mount Vernon after the daytime crowds have departed. Visitors may take evening tours of the Mansion, relax and enjoy wine and desserts available for purchase, and delight in 18th-century music, dancing, games, and wagon rides. Stroll the lantern-lit grounds from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and immerse yourself in the 18th century as the sun sets on the plantation and costumed residents like the charming “Lady Washington” and her granddaughter “Nelly” interact with visitors. Watch as costumed interpreters demonstrate the 18th-century chocolate-making process using an authentic colonial recipe!  

Tickets are $18, adults; $12, children ages 6-11; and free for five and under. Ticket sales begin April 15.

Admission Fee: $18/adult; $12/child, 5 and under free
