Celebrate the new year through the performing arts at First Night Alexandria. At this fun event, local retail stores, hotels, museums and public buildings are transformed into in performance venues to showcase the amazing talent found locally and regionally. Your family will enjoy clowns, face painters and magicians for the kids, while you and your friends can rock out to rock and roll guitarists or relax to jazz musicians and classical performers.
A small ticket fee allows adults and older children access to all the great events happening at First Night Alexandria, while children 12 and under can enter for free. The exciting culmination of events is the spectacular fireworks show at midnight over the Potomac, with no admission required! Many fantastic restaurants in the area will be open late, but make your reservations early. Otherwise, you can visit any of the food trucks that will show up to celebrate with New Year’s revelers. First Night Alexandria is a wonderful, cultural way to ring in the New Year and will surely become a tradition for years to come.
