Travel through centuries of local history as you learn more about Alexandria during the holiday season! Tour Gadsby’s Tavern Museum, Carlyle House, and Lee-Fendall House, enjoying seasonal decorations, entertainment, and light refreshments. This year Lloyd House joins the tour, hosting members of Beth El Hebrew Congregation, the oldest Jewish congregation in Northern Virginia, as they share the traditions of Hanukkah.


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.
