Events & Activities

In Fredericksburg, we celebrate our heritage all year round. With 250 annual events, your family will find something new to do every visit!

Recreation & Leisure
You can two-step at a real Texas dance hall or polka at a German festival. Listen to a concert or take in a play. Indulge your love of antiques, vintage vehicles, pioneer crafts, world history, and Native Americans.

Nature Centers, Gardens, Zoos
The great outdoors is everywhere and within easy reach. Drive past fields bursting with wildflowers, and neat gardens riotous with color. The Hill Country is home to a surprising variety of animal wildlife, both in nature and on display at exotic game ranches and zoos.

Sports & Outdoors
Play a round (or two!) of golf, climb a giant rock, or join a volkssport walk. Ride through the hills on two wheels or four. And plan to spend quality time camping, fishing, and hunting.

Tours & Sightseeing
Many folks enjoy sightseeing in our famous historic district, or taking a tour through distinctive homes and buildings. We encourage window shopping, as well as stopping in our many stores and markets.

Wine & Culinary
Any trip to Fredericksburg becomes a culinary adventure, with delicious tastings at our award-winning wineries, followed by gourmet meals at many fine restaurants and cafés.

For the Kids
And there is always plenty going on to keep the kids busy - from old-fashioned family fun to fascinating festivals, parades, and the oldest continuous county fair in Texas!
