Volunteer at First Night Alexandria This Year!

First Night Alexandria

First Night Alexandria is a fantastic celebration of the new year through the performing arts in Alexandria, Virginia. Local shops, restaurants and buildings in Old Town Alexandria turn into performance venues to showcase local talent.  It’s fun, affordable, safe and family friendly and a great way to ring in the new year.

The New Year’s Eve bash takes place all over Old Town Alexandria, with 100 live performances at 23 venues, the Annual Fun Hunt, plus children’s face painting and games; and a multimedia midnight spectacular with fireworks, lasers, video, and music at the George Washington Masonic Memorial. Performances begin at 7 p.m. and conclude at 11:30 p.m.

First Night Alexandria has twenty-six performance venues, as well as the Fun Hunt and children’s activities in the afternoon. All these locations need volunteers. They also need help from those who are familiar with iPads (or equivalent tablets) to help us manage our admission badge sales. New Year’s Eve volunteers generally serve in pairs and there are five three-hour shifts throughout the day.

All our volunteers receive free admission, a box dinner, and a First Night apron they can keep. There is plenty of time to enjoy performances and see the fabulous finale at midnight—fireworks on the Potomac!

The event is FREE for active military personnel and their families and is FREE for kids 12 and under.
