Fredericksburg Slice of Life

We’re happy to offer not only the finest Fredericksburg bed and breakfast accommodations, but all the information you need to find the best events and sights during your stay. Here’s what’s happening in Fredericksburg in March.

March 18-20: Fredericksburg Trade Days. One of the most important occasions in the old frontier lifestyle was the occasional trade day, when people would come from far and wide with their handmade goods, home cooked delicacies and finest animals to buy, sell, swap and barter. That tradition is alive and well in Texas Hill Country with Fredericksburg Trade Days, one of the most popular recurring local events. At Fredericksburg Trade Days you’ll find endless rows of vendors selling handcrafted goods, including antiques, crafts, clothing, jewelry, and ranch furniture—plus food, live music and a beer garden. The event is held outdoors and in the barn at the delightful Sunday Farms. Details.

March 19: Hill Country Indian Artifacts Show. Perfect for both the serious collector and the casual enthusiast—or just for a fun day with the family! The Hill Country Indian Artifacts Show is one of Texas’ largest gatherings for the display and sale of authentic Native American artifacts. Numerous vendors from across the country will be there, showing off goods including stone tools, beads, pottery, and of course lots and lots of arrowheads! Books, contemporary cultural artifacts, and jewelry will also be available. Don’t miss this one of a kind event. Details.
