Cost

Included in admission

Take in the sights and sounds of the marketplace on Mount Vernon's 12-acre field and chat with colonial artisans selling traditional handcrafted food and wares.

Colonial music transports you back to the 18th century as expert artisans demonstrate period crafting techniques. Learn how the Washignton's enjoyed chocolate as Mount Vernon's costumed interpreters recreate the process with an authentic colonial recipe. There's plenty of fun for the whole family.
