Colonial Market & Fair
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
The annual Colonial Market & Fair at Mount Vernon features dozens of America's finest craftspeople and plenty of family fun! Dozens of colonial-attired artisans demonstrate 18th-century crafts and sell traditional wares such as baskets, woodcarvings, tin and ironwork, leatherworkings, weavings, furniture, and much more.
Try your hand at 18th century cricket throughout the weekend. 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, and a balloon launch. Hearty specialty food will be for sale on site.
