Vintage Route 1 Tour and Downtown Community Day

Follow the original Route 1 down Princess Anne Street and Lafayette Boulevard and learn how this new "Highway" would forever change Fredericksburg.


Take a tour of 20th-century Fredericksburg and learn the history of the city.

Riverfront Park (on Sophia Street, between Hanover & Charlotte Streets) will have activities for all ages to enjoy. Children's activities will be available free of charge, including the HFFI Jr. Archaeology Lab where kids can learn how to clean and tag real artifacts! Vendors and entertainment will be running all day and the Annual Vintage Fashion Show will be taking place right in the park. Don't miss this show and your opportunity to see beautiful vintage clothing sourced from shops located right here in downtown Fredericksburg.

In-store events will be happening all day throughout town so be sure to get downtown early! The Fredericksburg 20th-century history exhibit will be available at Riverfront Park and Streetcar and walking tours of downtown will be departing from the park as well.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, September 6th!
