Enjoy fall activities with the whole family at Mount Vernon! Take a horse-drawn wagon ride and play colonial games on the bowling green before heading to the Pioneer Farm to observe 18th-century demonstrations and greet General Washington. Find your way through a straw bale maze and listen to the Itinerant Band play colonial tunes. Sightseeing cruises will be free throughout the weekend (while supplies last).

Punt Launch

On Saturday and Sunday at 12PM, watch the maiden voyages of two punts made at Mount Vernon! These small boats, which were crafted by hand at the Pioneer Farm over the summer, receive a cast off from General Washington during this special event.

After the launch until 5pm, chat with the boatbuilders about the punts, Washington's fleet, and Mount Vernon's fisheries.
