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.
