This annual festival of music and performing arts is a capstone holiday event in Alexandria and offers great options for family and friends to celebrate together safely. The site for entertainment this year expands the focus to the West End of Alexandria, VA. Reflect on good times, enjoy great music and anticipate a new year filled with new possibilities. A portion of the proceeds support young musicians studying choral, band and orchestra in Alexandria, VA middle and high schools. Sponsorships available and donations welcome. This event is made possible by the continued generosity of multiple community partners.
Ticket sales begin in late November with limited in-person capacity.
