George Washington's Mount Vernon
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 festivities: 18th-century entertainment including music, a balloon-launch, fire-eating, 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! Free Potomac River sightseeing cruises are available (while supplies last). See details on the Mount Vernon website.
