Summer nights were made for music and fun! The Fredericksburg Region has plenty of both. From kids’ concerts in the park to big performances on stage, there’s something for everyone. The only hard part? Deciding which ones to attend!

Celebrate Virginia After Hours – Did you know that Fredericksburg has a concert venue? “Celebrate Virginia After Hours is the premier outdoor concert series in Fredericksburg, VA bringing the best live music right to your backyard! It just got a lot louder and we like it that way!” If you love country music, the summer line up is definitely up your ally. Check out the concert schedule and buy tickets on their website. Season passes are also available. All concerts will go on as scheduled rain or shine.

Sounds of Summer Concert SeriesThe Fredericksburg Area Museum – Spend Friday evening hanging out, dancing, and simply enjoying live music with friends, in downtown’s Market Square.
