You are invited to this re-creation of the famous celebration of Washington’s Birthday, set in the year 1799. This Alexandria tradition includes an 18th-century banquet, English country dancing, dessert collation, character re-enactors, and honored guests General and Mrs. George Washington. Period costume optional; “after-five” attire encouraged. Ball begins at 9 p.m. If you wish to attend both the ball and the banquet prior to the ball, see Birthnight Banquet and Ball listing.
Reservations are required for all Birthnight events, and those not familiar with this style of dancing should complete at least one full dance class (see Birthnight Ball dance class listing) to become accustomed to the figures and language for the ball.
