When the Easter Bunny visits the Texas Hill Country, he brings along several special events to Fredericksburg. If you are in town for the holiday weekend, here is a look at several ways to celebrate the occasion.

				Indian Blanket Wildflowers

  • The fields at Wildseed Farms should be bursting with color this Easter Weekend. The nation’s largest working wildflower farm is located just a few miles from downtown Fredericksburg and will provide the perfect place to take photos of fields of Texas bluebonnets, poppies, and other seasonal wildflowers. View an update on the 2023 Wildflower Season.
  • Grab some fresh produce for your Easter brunch or Easter dinner at the Fredericksburg Farmers' Market. The market is held at Marktplatz on Thursday's from 4-7 p.m. and features fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, fish, wine and more. 
  • More than 40 different wineries will celebrate the spring season with the Wine & Wildflower Journey. For a flat fee, participants can experience Texas wine and the beauty of the Texas Hill Country. 
  • Browse a variety of special exhibits at participating First Friday Art Walk galleries. Participating galleries are open until 8 p.m. and many serve libations.

  • An Easter Saturday tradition, the Fredericksburg Lions Club will serve up all-you can eat pancakes Saturday morning at Marktplatz from 7-11 a.m.
  • After breakfast, make your way to the Pioneer Museum for an Easter egg hunt. Gates open at 10 a.m. but it is best to arrive early. The grounds are sectioned off based on age group. After the hunt is over, stop and get a photo with the Easter bunny himself.
