Night in Washington’s Day

Experience the 18th century in a whole new light!

This year, we’ve got a brand-new take on our annual Night in Washington’s Day Program. Explore the illuminated grounds, 1775 mansion, and outbuildings of Historic Kenmore to see how surprisingly active nights were in the 18th century.

Take in the dining, dancing, and drinking of the gentry and hear the words of the enslaved people who worked day and night on the property. Hands-on activities create an up-close look at lighting techniques from long ago. Guests will discover how nighttime transformed from a fearful darkness to an illuminated extension of liveliness in history!

Saturday, November 4
7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

Advance ticket purchase for an entry time is required. Entry times are in half hour increments.
$15.00 – adults
$7.00 – students (ages 6-17)
Free – children (age 5 & under)
