Winter Holidays in Alexandria

Feel transported by an old fashioned sense of holiday wonder on Old Town Alexandria's brick-lined streets and historic waterfront, with festive events, twinkle-lit trees and shopping at local boutiques. Alexandria is famous for its holiday traditions and events, including the Campagna Center's Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend, featuring a parade with dozens of Scottish clans in tartan, the Holiday Boat Parade of Lights on the Potomac River, and First Night Alexandria, a spectacular New Year's celebration with 100 performances and a fireworks finale. Independent boutiques kick off the shopping season with a one-of-a-kind Black Friday event, where windows lit with holiday decorations sparkle with storewide deals. Named a Top 10 Christmas Town by HGTV, Alexandria offers an authentic holiday experience - the way it was meant to be.
