General Washington will be on hand overseeing the festivities: 18th-century entertainment including music, a balloon-launch, fire-eating, puppet and magic shows, plus hearty specialty food for sale on site.

Costumed interpreters will be demonstrating the 18th-century chocolate-making process using an authentic colonial recipe! Free Potomac River sightseeing cruises are available (while supplies last). Colonial Market & Fair takes place rain or shine.
