Historic Fun at the Mount Vernon Colonial Market & Fair!


The annual Mount Vernon Colonial Market & Fair 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. Watch an actor portraying General Washington oversee lively Revolutionary War military drills. Enjoy 1700s-era entertainment, including music, fire-eating, sword-swallowing, puppet and magic shows, and a balloon launch. Hearty specialty food also will be for sale.
