Tickets are on sale for the annual “A Downtown Affair” fundraising event put on by Fredericksburg VA Main Street Inc.
This year’s Downtown Affair event, which will start at 5 p.m. October 11, will be a little different than in years past, when diners gathered on a block of Caroline Street for a lavish open-air meal prepared by talented downtown chefs.
This year’s event will be called “A Downtown Affair To Go,” and will include a mobile party package featuring a five-course meal prepared by five different downtown restaurants:
- Appetizer – Capital Ale House
- Seafood – Vivify
- Pasta – Orofino Restaurant
- Meat – La Petite Auberge
- Dessert – Eileen’s Bakery & Cafe
Each pair of tickets, which are selling for $300 through September 5, will also receive wine or cocktails, coffee or tea, handmade plates by local potters, selfie photo props, a swag bag, napkins and a Bloomia tulip arrangement. Numerous add-on options featuring products from downtown businesses are also available. Ticket-holders will be able to pick up their to-go party packages between 3-4 p.m. October 11 at the Fredericksburg Baptist Church’s Caroline Street entrance.
The event has always sold out, so get your tickets now! It’s great to see organizations figuring out a way to safely carry out cherished annual events. That growing list also includes this year’s Riverfest and Candlelight Tour events, and more are to come!
