Rescheduled from September, the Mount Vernon Colonial Market and Fair combines artisanal crafters in period costumes, great food, and fantastic historical entertainment. 

It’s hard not to geek out at 12 acres of a colonial market and fair day. Everywhere you look, the grounds of Mount Vernon will be giving you a glimpse into the life and times of George Washington and his household. Bakers, painters, calligraphers, and entertainers will be plying their wares for the entire weekend. The best part? This event is FREE with admission to the Mount Vernon grounds. Just bring your pocket money to buy unique holiday gifts for everyone!
