In the heart of Fredericksburg, woven into the tapestry of America’s most historic city, are eight art galleries and studios, each one a vibrant celebration of visual creativity. And on First Fridays for the past 30 years, the galleries have drawn thousands downtown to check out local art, rub shoulders with the artists, hear street-corner musicians, and sample the fares and wares at downtown’s 21 restaurants and 30 late-night shops. Some, if they’re of age, buy a beverage so they can sip and stroll–walking, talking, and gawking at the diverse riches downtown Fredericksburg has to offer. Others hop on and off the free trolley that loops through the arts and business district. Exhibitions. Performances. Special Events. FXBG First Friday is no still life. It’s worlds within worlds, waiting for you to explore.
