Christmas Illuminations at Mount Vernon

01 | 02

Join Mount Vernon for an evening of family-friendly fun and fireworks choreographed to holiday music.

Take a stroll through the estate while being serenaded by local choirs, visit Aladdin the camel, and chat with re-enactors from the First Virginia Regiment. George Washington will also be on-site to greet Mount Vernon’s holiday guests.

Watch as colonial artisans demonstrate the 18th-century process of creating chocolate. Keep toasty by warming up by a bonfire, enjoy hot chocolate or cider, and visit the Museum and Education Center (open from 5:30-8PM). Additional food will be available for purchase.
