November 2 @9:00 am - 2:00 pm ~ Maury Park

Join us November 2nd as we walk to save the lives of our community’s neediest animals with a one mile stroll through historic downtown Fredericksburg.

The centerpiece of each and every Animal Rescue Festival is the Walk for the Animals, a beloved tradition in Fredericksburg for more than 20 years. The Walk has evolved into a full-fledged family street festival, complete with craft vendors, live music, activities for children, and of course a beer garden for their parents.

While the Walk for the Animals is a big part of the day, one doesn’t need to join the Walk to have a great time. And all proceeds benefit the FRED SPCA, Fredericksburg’s own Animal Resource Center!

Festival Entrance is free. Walk for the Animals Individual/Team $30.
