Rescheduled from September 15-16, the Colonial Market & Fair is back by popular demand on a new date, featuring dozens of America’s historic craftspeople and plenty of family fun. Visit the marketplace on Mount Vernon’s 12-acre field to get a jump start on holiday shopping. Chat with colonial artisans who demonstrate and sell traditional food and wares made from wood, metal, and textiles. Listen to colonial tunes and watch performers demonstrate 18th-century crafts, including Mount Vernon’s costumed interpreters making chocolate using an authentic colonial recipe.
