Start your Independence Day celebration with a bang! Enjoy a patriotic evening filled with dazzling fireworks, Mansion tours, musical performances, and games on George Washington’s beloved estate! Fireworks begin at approximately 9:30pm.
Greet General and Mrs. Washington in the historic area before trying your hand at bocce ball. Dust off your dancing shoes for 18th-century dancing demonstrations. Mount Vernon’s colonial artisans will reveal how 18th-century ice cream was made in the days before freezers.
Visit Washington’s Tomb at night—this event is one of the few times this area is open in the evening—and watch sparks fly at the blacksmith shop. Concessions from the Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant will also be available.
