Trick-or-Treating at Mount Vernon

  • Mount Vernon 3200 Mount Vernon Place Northwest Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

Trick-or-treat at Mount Vernon! The estate will again open its gates for Halloween fun and spook-tacular activities. Participate in a special scavenger hunt, take a wagon ride on the 12-acre field, and create a boo-tiful Halloween craft in this unforgettable evening. Watch wool carding and spinning, historic chocolate-making, and fishnet making demonstrations in the historic area. In order to burn off all the extra excitement, try 18th-century dancing in the upper garden before greeting Martha Washington. A children’s costume parade around the Mansion will begin at 5PM and prizes will be awarded for the best George and Martha costumes! Trick-or-Treating at Mount Vernon takes place rain or shine.
