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.
