Insider Tips: 2018 Food & Wine Fest SEP 10 2018
While celebrating all things food and wine at the 2018 Fredericksburg Food & Wine Fest, here are 3 tips to maximize your Fredericksburg experience:
- Plan ahead and book early. Fall is a busy time in Fredericksburg and the Food & Wine Fest brings people from all over the world to town, so the hotels and guesthouses in the Fredericksburg area fill up quickly. Avoid scrambling for somewhere to stay by booking your lodging as far in advance as possible. For a searchable list of lodging options (including all hotels, motels, guesthouses, B&Bs and Inns) in Fredericksburg and Gillespie County, click here.
- Get your tickets in advance. Since a number of events over the course of the weekend have a limited number of tickets, advanced ticket purchase is recommended and even required for some events. Buy your tickets here, so you don’t miss out once the event has reached capacity.
- Park at the Visitor Information Center. Did you know that there’s a free parking lot behind the Visitor Information Center at 302 East Austin Street? Main Street parking fills up fast during big events, but the parking lot behind the Visitor Information Center is a hidden gem, and only a few blocks from Marktplatz. After you park, stop by the Visitor Information Center and tell us “hi!” We’re happy to provide tips on making your Fredericksburg visit memorable.
