Holiday Open House Weekend

November 11 and 12, 2023

The annual Holiday Open House Weekend is the official start of the holiday season in Downtown Fredericksburg, Virginia.
Downtown is decorated. Shops are full of gifts. Restaurants are full of cheer. Holiday music is in the air. Santa takes a break from his workshop to greet you with a smile.
You can see the shopping deals and promotions on the Holiday Open House Weekend page.

Also, be sure to try out our annual Window Wonderland contest, which involves solving riddles placed in downtown windows and voting for the most-beautiful displays. Stop by the Visitor Center for your riddle sheet.
