The weather finally got hot on us, but that doesn’t slow down Fredericksburg. There is still a ton to do here on this beautiful August weekend. Start out with the Farmer’s Market today, then the Friday Art Walk and spend the rest of the weekend enjoying live music!
If you are a local or just visiting, don’t miss the Fredericksburg Farmer’s Market. We believe it’s important to think and act locally. By this we mean whenever possible, buy locally grown and produced foods for your table. By supporting your independent, local farms you’ll in effect also help the environment by reducing the damaging transportation emissions and excess packaging which ends up in our landfills. Most importantly, nothing tastes quite as good as something that was picked and prepared fresh that very same day! Enjoy the options your market provides every week. You can find us every Thursday and running through the end of September.
First Friday Art Walk
A tradition in Fredericksburg is the FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK FREDERICKSBURG, with galleries open until 8:00pm. Fredericksburg’s art galleries will be focusing on some aspect of exhibiting artists’ works, which may include painting and fine craft demonstrations, casual art talks, opportunities to meet artists, special showings and entertainment. Participants will experience the Fredericksburg art scene up close and personal while enjoying fine wines from local wineries and beyond all day long. Participating galleries are Artisans at Rocky Hill, Charles Beckendorf Gallery, Fredericksburg Art Gallery, The Good Art Co., Photography 414, Rodeo Studio Gallery, Uptown Market, Whistle Pik Galleries, Fredericksburg Art Guild and InSight Gallery.
