Rock the River FXBG is the first event of its kind for Fredericksburg, Virginia. The event combines activities from various communities who benefit from, are inspired by, and enjoy their time on the Rappahannock River. There's adventure with multi-sport river and foot races, outdoor activities for grown-ups, kids, as well as furry friends, a display of unique art and crafts, in addition to the enjoyment of the best local craft beer, tasty food, and live music all day. These communities have one thing in common — the goal to show our beautiful Rappahannock River the love it deserves!

Rock the River FXBG, organized by a group of Fredericksburg non-profits and small business owners, is the area's largest grassroots outdoor festival. Tying local artists, musicians, craft brewers, and even dogs to Old Mill Park for a jam packed single-day festival along the beautiful Rappahannock River. The festival features a variety of outdoor sports including canoeing, kayaking, biking, stand up paddleboarding, and trail run/walking. The event was designed to promote Fredericksburg's scenic riverfront, downtown trails and local artists to both everyday folk as well as outdoor enthusiasts. As a result of the creation of Rock the River FXBG, there is now a stronger appreciation for the value of outdoor recreation throughout the entire Fredericksburg area. 

If you love our river and everything it means to Fredericksburg, then you do not want to miss this event!

We're also proud to announce Rock the River FXBG is officially a Virginia Green Event which means all partnering members have made voluntarily commitments to reduce the impact on the environment throughout the entire event!
