Take In The Sights At The Mount Vernon Christmas Light Show

November 15th, 2018 by

Mount Vernon Christmas Light Show

Usher in the season of lights with Christmas Illuminations on the grounds of historical Mount Vernon. This event is fun for all ages and features a dazzling fireworks show overlooking the Potomac River. Purchase a ticket for the fireworks show along with a tour of Mount Vernon, the grand mansion of George Washington, or simply get your ticket for the fireworks show itself and see the mansion another day. Either way, you’ll be in for a memorable holiday experience.

Fun for All at Christmas Illuminations

The fireworks show, choreographed to holiday music, might be the main attraction, but there are other fun things to do at this special event, too. Come early to stroll the grounds of Mount Vernon where you can visit with period re-enactors from the First Virginia Regiment, learn 18th-century dance moves from costumed guides, and even meet George and Martha Washington themselves.

Colonial artisans will be demonstrating the old-fashioned (and delicious!) process of chocolate making, and you can stay warm by a blazing bonfire. You can also visit the blacksmith shop and enjoy hot chocolate and cider. Food vendors will be on hand with other refreshments for sale.

Following the fireworks, stop by the Shops at Mount Vernon to do a little Christmas shopping – the stores will stay open late during Christmas Illuminations.

Ticket Details

This special event is scheduled for December 14 and 15 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. Tickets for the fireworks and mansion tour are $35 for adults, $25 for youth. Tickets for just the fireworks are $30 for adults, $20 for youth.
