Illuminated by flickering candlelight, tours explore Gadsby’s Tavern Museum—guests see how chocolate beverages are created out of beans, and enjoy 18th-century music and dancing. Tours also visit the Lee-Fendall House, a Victorian home where participants can sample 19th-century style fudge.

About Historic Alexandria
When America's first six presidents needed a place to celebrate, they headed to Gadsby’s Tavern. Home to Thomas Jefferson's inaugural banquet and two of George Washington's Birthnight Balls, the tavern also hosted plenty of community dances, musical performances, and meetings for local organizations. These days, Historic Alexandria Candlelight Tours blends history, seasonal decorations, music, and tours highlighting festive traditions. 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. Tour runs anytime between 4pm-9pm.
