The City of Alexandria – in partnership with dozens of local arts organizations and programs – combines the success of existing cultural events, bringing them “all under one roof” for three days in Downtown Alexandria. Together with numerous local businesses, community participants, teams, civic leaders and sponsors, the AlexRiverFête celebration embodies the spirit of community, culture and collaboration.
Locals and visitors alike will have plenty to see and do in Downtown Alexandria during the three-day AlexRiverFête: Festivities include:
o Dinner on the Bricks – Come dine on the bricks as locally owned restaurants and caterers showcase the best of their menus. Musical entertainment provided by Jazz band Improv. Admission is free, but menu prices vary.
o ArtWalk – Sidewalks, green spaces, and the streets of Downtown Alexandria will come alive as more than 65 local participating artists, vendors, and performers showcase their talent.
o Louisiana Dragon Boat Races™ - Now in its third year, the 2013 Louisiana Dragon Boat Races™ will feature more teams, entertainment, food, fun and elaborate costumes than ever before.
