CANCELLED - Mount Vernon Colonial Market and Fair (VA)


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

9/18/18: UPDATE:

Due to the incoming Hurricane Florence, George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate and Museum canceled the Colonial Market and Fair for the original event date of Sept 15-16.

Mount Vernon rescheduled the event on 9/17 for Nov 10-11 - however Silhouettes By Hand is already scheduled elsewhere for that weekend, and sadly cannot attend.

---------------------------

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.
