Christmas Illuminations

Daily, December 18, 2020 - December 19, 2020
From: 05:30 PM to 08:30 PM

Kick off the holiday season with sparkling fireworks overlooking the Potomac River! 

Join Mount Vernon for an evening of family-friendly fun and fireworks choreographed to holiday music. Before the fireworks begin around 8PM, take a stroll through the estate and visit with re-enactors from the First Virginia Regiment. Martha Washington will also be on site to greet Mount Vernon’s holiday guests.

Watch colonial artisans demonstrate the 18th-century process of creating chocolate and visit with Aladdin the camel on the 12-acre field. Keep toasty by warming up by a bonfire, enjoying some hot chocolate or cider, or visiting the Museum and Education Center (open from 5:30-8PM).

Still haven’t found the perfect holiday gift? Take some time to complete any last minute gift needs at the Shops at Mount Vernon, open late during Christmas Illuminations.
