Sunset Celebration at Mount Vernon

Mount Vernon invites visitors to an unforgettable evening experience!  Sunset Celebration at Mount Vernon, an event over Memorial Day weekend,  offers a rare opportunity to visit Mount Vernon after the daytime  crowds have departed. Visitors may take evening tours of the Mansion,  relax and enjoy wine and desserts available for purchase, and delight in  18th-century music, dancing, games, and wagon rides. Stroll the  lantern-lit grounds from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and immerse yourself in the  18th century as the sun sets on the plantation and costumed residents  like the charming “Lady Washington” and her granddaughter “Nelly”  interact with visitors. Watch as costumed interpreters demonstrate the  18th-century chocolate-making process using an authentic colonial  recipe!  

Tickets are $18, adults; $12, children ages 6-11; and free for five and under. Ticket sales begin April 15.
