Revolutionary War Weekend at George Washington’s Mount Vernon


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


The 18th-century comes to life at George Washington’s Mount Vernon! Visit this historical landmark, and former home of our nation’s 1st president, for Revolutionary War Weekend on May 4-5, 2019!

Two days full of re-enactments, military technique demos, and informational sessions await you at this family-friendly event! As the largest Revolutionary War re-enactment in the region, the event brings you to the center of the action as Continentals, Redcoats, Hessians, and more gather on the bowling green for battle! You’ll even have a chance to meet General Washington himself!

Did you know George Washington’s Mount Vernon is open 365 days a year? Open to the public since 1860, Mount Vernon is the former plantation estate and burial location of George Washington, an American political leader, military general, statesman, and Founding Father who served as the first President of the United States from 1789 to 1797.

In addition to a 1735 mansion and the tomb of George and Martha Washington, the property includes a memorial dedicated to the enslaved people who lived and worked on the estate. Mount Vernon also has many interpretive spaces, such as the Pioneer Farm and Washington’s Gristmill & Distillery — all to better understand our first President’s ambitious and profitable business ventures.

Enjoy guided and self-guided tours, seasonal and special events, and more. Visit Mount Vernon online today to plan your visit.
