Picnic in the Park
Picnic in the Park formerly "Lunch at Hurkamp" started in 1997 and has grown into one of the community’s most popular events. Each concert serves as a meeting place and opportunity for community groups, business people, friends, families, seniors, and preschoolers to gather together and enjoy music, downtown Fredericksburg, and each other.

Fredericksburg Parks & Recreation’s Picnic in the Park FREE concert series is a wonderful opportunity for visitors and residents of the Fredericksburg area to savor a beautiful day outdoors while enjoying live, local entertainment in historic downtown.  Bring a picnic lunch, a blanket, and come relax with the kiddos. 

This event would not be possible without the support of our 2015 Sponsors: COX CommunicationsFredericksburg Academy and our media sponsor B101.5!
