Join us for an enchanted evening to remember


AFCEA DC is pleased to bring you our 46th Annual Winter Gala, which will be hosted again at the iconic National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. The annual gala will continue to deliver safe and responsible in-person social networking, featuring timeless traditions and all-new experiences. 

Combining classic elegance with modern luxury, the Winter Gala brings together more than 1,000 senior leaders from the Department of Defense, Federal IT community, and industry together to network and welcome the holiday season in style—all while giving back to the community. In 2021, more than $175,000 was raised for STEM scholarships, and more than 7,000 toys were collected for Toys for Tots at the Winter Gala. We hope you will join us!
