First Night Winchester

For our Tourism Tuesday conversation today, I chatted with Justin Kerns from Winchester/Frederick County Convention & Visitors Bureau and his guest, Christine Germeyer, Executive Director for First Night Winchester.

Christine told us about how to get our wristbands for this year’s event – now in it’s 35th year – as well as highlighted several of the new performers we can expect to see. She told us about the noon walk on The Trails at MSV on New Year’s Day.

First Night Winchester is announcing a major change to their admission procedure due to the ongoing pandemic.  Masks will be required for all indoor venues, regardless of vaccination status. Wristbands go on sale December 21st and are $10 each for everyone; children 5 and younger are FREE.  Wristbands can be reserved online now at www.firstnightwinchester.com or purchased in person at three locations: Winchester Book Gallery, The MSV, Winchester/Frederick County Visitors Center.
