HISTORIC MARKET SQUARE

Dating to 1728, this cobblestone and brick square once housed the city’s primary marketplace. Today, it is one of a small number of outdoor venues in the historic district. It is our largest rental space and is a perfect location for outdoor weddings and receptions. Get married in one of the only outdoor wedding venues in downtown Fredericksburg. Feel the energy of the city while enjoying the intimate feel of this historic open area.

 

We have also had organizations host BBQs and concerts in the square. Historic Market Square provides a wonderful backdrop of architecture and has an inviting atmosphere for any event.
