Mount Vernon's annual Colonial Market & Fair

Every year during the third weekend in September Mount Vernon hosts its annual Colonial Market & Fair. The event is a fun visit back in time, complete with entertainment, shopping and living history. Even General Washington himself is present. 

It's a great family day out. We usually go each year. This will be the first time in several years I likely won't be able to make it. I usually pick up a lot of great Christmas gifts during this weekend.

A popular event that showcases Colonial life, the day features crafts, demonstrations, wares and entertainment. You can get a first-hand experience of Colonial life as vendors, entertainers and artisans dress up in period style and remain in character throughout the day. You can ask questions and experience first-hand Revolutionary-era living.
I wrote a detailed post last year with lots of photos if you're looking for more information. This year's event takes place on Sat., Sept. 19, 2015 and Sun., Sept. 20, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The cost is the same as a regular admission, but there are extra perks and freebies to be found during this weekend.
