Experience a Colonial Christmas

Looking for a new holiday tradition? Try experiencing what Christmas was like in the time of our Founding Fathers by going to Christmas Illuminations at Mount Vernon.

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, “himself”, will also be on-site to greet holiday guests to his ancestral home.

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.
