People with passion for Downtown – we need you! A Downtown Affair last year brought many people together to work towards the same goal – their LOVE for Downtown. It’s a fundraiser for Fredericksburg VA Main Street.  A Downtown Affair was a success because of the numerous and various talented volunteers that came forward – from chefs to servers to auction paddle creators. It was an event to remember.
The dinner will happen on Sunday,  October 6th rain or shine. Will move to A. Smith Bowman in the event of rain.
There is a pre-event on October 2nd at the Marriott that we like you to attend at 6pm.
