First Night Alexandria

First Night Alexandria is an annual New Year’s Eve music festival and the largest family-friendly and alcohol-free New Year’s Eve party in the DC area. The fun for the family begins at 2PM.  Entertainment starts at 7PM around Old Town.  And, of course, there will be a fireworks display—the only one in the DC area—over the Potomac River at midnight.

Old Town will showcase more than 100 performers at 25 warm indoor venues.  New this year is a Kids Karnival for children 12 years old and younger at three locations from 6 to 9PM that includes face painting, games and a kids’ countdown;  a bigger-than-ever party at the George Washington Masonic National Memorial featuring Magician Mike Rose, dance parties with DJ Good Times and fireworks viewing from the lawn; and a Variety Showcase from 8 to 10 p.m. at Shiloh Baptist Church featuring comedians and spoken word poets.

And there is always the Fun Hunt for both kids and adults.  Teams can pick up a clue sheet at the Torpedo Factory, search for items on the list, and return the completed sheet for a chance to win money, vouchers, games and merchandise.

Tickets are $30 December 1-30, 2018 and $35 December 31, 2018. Kids 12 and under accompanied by an adult with a badge and active military get in free.
