First Night Alexandria – Fun for the Whole Family #ALXFirstNight

First Night Alexandria logo

First Night Alexandria is a fantastic celebration of the new year through the performing arts. 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 midnight spectacular with fireworks on the Potomac River waterfront. Performances conclude at 11:30 p.m.

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

NOTE(s): There will be road closures and you can get in free by volunteering at First Night Alexandria.
