Fancy a drink with George and Martha? Hurry up and get your tickets to the Fall Wine Festival and Sunset Tours at Mount Vernon; Saturday is already sold out!

One of the region's coveted tickets is for the wine tasting at the historic Mount Vernon Estate. Sample your way through some amazing bottles from over 20 regional wineries, and don't forget the special tours. You'll see Mount Vernon by candlelight (the way it was meant to be seen!) and finish the evening with your friends on the lawn.

Individual tickets are already sold out for Saturday, but VIP tables for 12 are still available. If you're going in a small group, make sure you buy your tickets online as soon as possible.

George Washington, Martha Washington

Know Before You Go

  • This is an outdoor event; you may want to bring bug spray with you just in case.
  • You can bring a picnic blanket and portable camp chairs, but coolers and your own food are prohibited.
  • Do not park in bus lanes; look for signage that indicates car parking for Mount Vernon.
  • Be comfortable, but still dress to impress! This is usually a sold-out event, and you never know who you might meet.
