First Night Fredericksburg

First Night Fredericksburg is an annual event that attracts thousands to that city. With 10 musical acts on 10 stages, and kids and family zones throughout the festival area, it’s one of the region’s premier family-friendly New Year’s Eve events.

While there will be several restaurants and vendors in attendance, the highlight of the night comes at midnight when a globe is dropped at the city’s Riverfront Park after a 10-second countdown.

Tickets to the event are $5 in advance and $8 the night of the event. Paid event-event goers will be issued a button good for admission into all of the venue tents and musical performance areas.
