Picnic in the Park

Picnic-in-the-Park-newsflashA local tradition since 1997!

It has since grown into one of the community’s most popular events. Each concert serves as a meeting place and opportunity for community groups, business people, friends, families, seniors, and preschoolers to gather together and enjoy music, downtown Fredericksburg, and each other. Fredericksburg Parks, Recreation & Events hosts this FREE concert series made possible by our wonderful sponsors! It’s a great opportunity for visitors and residents to savor a beautiful day outdoors in historic downtown while enjoying live, local entertainment. Bring a picnic lunch, a blanket, and come relax with the kiddos.
