Vintage Route 1 Event
The Vintage Route 1 Event is back for its 4th year and it is shaping up to be a great time!

An all new tour of the Upper Princess Anne neighborhood will be available and the popular classic car display from the Historic Fredericksburg Region AACA will be returning. This area of Fredericksburg boomed along with the automobile age and the popularity of U.S. Route 1. Come learn about Fredericksburg’s 20th century history with exhibits, tours, and an all new 20th-Century History Quiz Tent! Don’t miss this fun day for the whole family!
The general event is FREE and open to the public. The Upper Princess Anne Street walking tour will be a ticketed event with tickets going on sale in mid-August. There will be a discount for HFFI members.
