First Night Winchester is the largest, safest, family-friendly, non-alcoholic, budget-friendly New Year’s Eve celebration in the Shenandoah Valley. One price gets you a wristband that allows you into all First Night events for the entire evening.
On December 31 this community event brings the night to life as businesses, churches, and other venues open their doors to multiple stages featuring performances throughout the evening. Entertainment includes, but is not limited to, folk, jazz, bluegrass, oldies, acoustical guitar, puppet shows, kids events and more throughout Old Town Winchester.
And then, just before the year ends, everyone comes together at the intersection of Cameron and Boscawen Streets to count down time with our official “Apple Drop” and midnight fireworks display!
