Take a break from the fast pace of the season and enjoy the unique charm and history of Old Town at Alexandria’s most popular holiday event.  Tour Gadsby’s Tavern Museum, Carlyle House, and Lee-Fendall House, enjoying seasonal decorations, entertainment, and light refreshments.  This year, Alexandria Black History Museum joins the tour as the guest site, featuring “Our Alexandria,” The Sharon J. Frazier and Linwood M. Smith Dollhouse Collection.  These beautiful miniatures tell the story of African American life in Alexandria and Virginia.  Public parking is available near all sites, but a free shuttle will also be provided, running in a continuous loop between the sites.   

Enjoy each site by candlelight, smell seasonal greenery, sip on drinks and taste period inspired food. Seasonal libations will be available for purchase. A free shuttle will be provided running in a continuous loop between the sites. All proceeds from this event help support the mission of these historic sites.
