Ring in the New Year with family and friends in Old Town Alexandria at the 25th Annual First Night Alexandria. This annual live music and performing arts festival is the largest New Year’s Eve party in the D.C. region that is safe and fun for the entire family and culminates with a fantastic fireworks finaleover the Potomac River at midnight. Take your pick from country to Caribbean, rock to reggae, jazz to swing, folk to acapella, or comedy to magic as you enjoy a concert or dance the night away. Cozy up and experience outstanding performing artists in a range of venues, from independent boutiques to art galleries to historic sites from the rail to the river.
Age-appropriate activities await the youngest party animals at First Night’s four Kids Karnivals happening from 6 to 9 p.m., complete with their own creative countdown. Starting at 10 p.m., head to the waterfront with your all access badge for the “Rockin’ on the River” dance party in the park, featuring DJ Ray Casiano and fireworks at midnight sponsored by MGM National Harbor, along with food trucks and prizes.
