Program Details

George Washington’s Mount Vernon invites visitors to sip craft beer and taste local and historic culinary treats while watching the sun set at the first president’s home! Relax to live music, join in a bocce game, and unwind against the backdrop of the Potomac River.

Beer lovers can experience a taste of history as Colonial Williamsburg’s beer-making expert demonstrates 18th century beer brewing. Guests will enjoy samples from local breweries including Old Ox Brewery, Port City Brewing Company, Atlas Brew Works, Old Bust Head Brewery, and Forge Brew Works. Hard cider-making demonstrations and samples will also be available.

Mount Vernon’s chocolatiers will demonstrate the process of making chocolate while serving up chocolate martini samples! The event also offers foodies a chance to talk with 18th-century herbalist, Betsey Golan, and sample flavorful herb-infused dips and teas. And what better way to cool off on a warm summer day than with ice cream—a treat George Washington himself enjoyed. Event-goers will explore how it was made before the days of refrigeration during ice cream-making demonstrations.

After sampling culinary treats and libations, take part in a game of bocce ball on the bowling green. Stroll the lantern-lit grounds and immerse yourself in the 18th century as you mingle with costumed residents like the charming “Lady Washington.” Enjoy 18th-century music, dancing, and more historic fun.
