Cost

$25

Sip craft beer and taste local and historic culinary treats while watching the sun set at the first president’s home! Relax to live bluegrass music from Bud's Collective, play colonial games, and unwind against the backdrop of the Potomac River.

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 a 18th-century herbalist and sample flavorful herb-infused dips and teas. 

After sampling culinary treats and libations, stroll the lantern-lit grounds and immerse yourself in the 18th century as you mingle with costumed residents. Enjoy 18th-century music, dancing, ice cream making demonstrations, and more historic fun.

Summer Escape takes place rain or shine.

Admission includes 5 beer tastings. Additional tastings are available for purchase: $2 each or 6 for $10.
