The annual Colonial Market & Fair at Mount Vernon features dozens of America’s finest craftspeople and plenty of family fun!

Fifty colonial-attired artisans demonstrate 18th-century crafts and sell traditional wares such as baskets, woodcarvings, tin and ironwork, leather-workings, weavings, furniture, and much more.  “General Washington” will be on hand overseeing the lively Revolutionary War military drills and 18th-century entertainment including music, fire-eating, sword-swallowing, puppet and magic shows, plus hearty specialty food for sale on site.

Costumed interpreters will be demonstrating the 18th-century chocolate-making process using an authentic colonial recipe!  This weekend only, 40-minute sightseeing cruises on the Potomac River, courtesy of Spirit Cruises and Potomac Riverboat Company, are free of charge (while supplies last).



Admission Fee: Event included in general admission.
