Come out and Fredericksburg Parks & Rec for our annual Earth Day Festival Saturday, April 18th, 11am-4pm (Rain Date April 25th) at Old Mill Park. Parking at the site will be limited so hop on your bike or lace up your walking shoes and head on down.
We’ll have dozens of environmental exhibitors, all there to engage you with hands-on activities promoting enjoyment and stewardship of our earth. Learn to cast a fly rod, try your hand on a spinning wheel, and observe live birds of prey! Meet Mother Earth, beekeepers, chickens, and kids--take a ride on a pony or the barrel train! Hop aboard the See and Touch Nature Bus or sit inside a kayak. That’s just the beginning…there will be so much to do and see, as well as great live music and delicious food, all within a stone’s throw of the beautiful Rappahannock River!
Buy a $3 raffle ticket for our drawing at 3pm. You may win a family pass to the YMCA water park, a new kayak and paddle, a brand new bicycle, rain barrel, a stay at the Courtyard Marriott Downtown, and more!
We will have 60+ vendors in attendance to include Dotera Essential oils, Downtown Greens, Fred. Farmers Market, Honeycomb Heroes, Kickshaws Downtown, See and Touch Nature Bus,Sneads Asparagus Farm, Riverrock Outfitters and more!
