The festival showcases the history of Fredericksburg with excellent historical exhibits.  Historical marker #10079 tells a bit of the story.  “This Square, originally a two-block area which included what is now called the Courthouse Square, has been at the center of Fredericksburg since the city’s founding in 1846.  The area was still heavily forested when the town’s Vereins Kirche was built in the center of Main Street in 1847.  The octagonal building served as a community church, meeting place, school, and refuge….As part of its centennial celebration, the State of Texas erected a monument on Market Square in honor of Baron Ottfried Hans Freiherr Von Meusebach, whose colonization efforts led to the founding of Fredericksburg.”

Costumed presenters bring it all to life.  The Night in Old Fredericksburg festival opens Friday evening, June 10 at 6:00 p.m. until midnight and runs Saturday, June 11, 2011 from 11:30 a.m. until midnight.  Admission is Adults $6 or $10 for a 2-day pass.  Children 12 and under are $1.
