Mount Vernon Colonial Market and Fair (VA)


  • George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate 3200 Mount Vernon Memorial Highway Mount Vernon, VA, 22121 United States

The finest traditional craftspeople come together on the grounds of George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate to bring you the highest-quality handmade work in a historical setting.

Colonial-attired artisans demonstrate 18th-century crafts and sell traditional wares such as baskets, woodcarvings, tin and ironwork, leather-workings, weavings, furniture, and much more.

General Washington will be on hand overseeing the festivities: 18th-century entertainment including music, a balloon-launch, fire-eating, puppet and magic shows, plus hearty specialty food for sale on site.

Silhouettes By Hand has been a favorite artisan at this event for six years, creating silhouette portraits and selling the finest rare frames for the historically inspired visitors and guests.
