What is First Night Alexandria?

First Night Alexandria showcases and supports the performing and lively arts. We provide an alternative to traditional New Year’s Eve celebrations that enables the public to enjoy an evening of curated entertainment that is family-friendly and affordable. A portion of proceeds supports young musicians studying choral, band and orchestra in Alexandria city middle and high schools. Even in these unprecedented times, we will continue this much anticipated 26-year tradition with an exciting new Drive-In Destination & Virtual Entertainment Experience!

First Night Alexandria, Inc is a 501c3 Non-profit organization dedicated to broadening and deepening the appreciation of cultural diversity in the performing arts. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
