What's On Main Street
The central shopping district, referred to as "The Magic Mile", is separated from the West Main Street shopping district by Marktplatz.
"The Magic Mile" begins just east of the Admiral Nimitz Museum and continues west to Marktplatz. Along the way, in outstanding historical buildings, you will enjoy top quality shopping. Wide sidewalks and courtyards line the streets making this a lovely walk. Marktplatz, in the 100 block of Main Street, could easily be called the heart and soul of Fredericksburg, Texas. Many of Fredericksburg's famous festivals and events are held here. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind. There are pavilions, picnic tables and public restrooms.
You can take a leisurely stroll through the exquisite native gardens, studded with heirloom roses. For the kids, there's a playscape, a storytelling Maibaum, a waterwheel and extensive, well manicured lawns for running and playing. The Maibaum was created by metal artist Roy Bellows, and shows the history of Fredericksburg all along its patina branches. Other historical sculptures can also be found on the grounds. The Vereins Kirche Museum stands at the center of the Marktplatz, It was the first public building in town. It has served as the town hall, a school, a fort, and a church.

Sydney Yeager’s Persistent Memory Exhibit
August 29 – October 26, 2014 The Gallery at Vaudeville presents Sydney Yeager’s "Persistent Memory" Exhibit
Private Opening Thursday, August 28th 6:30 – 8:30pm

“This exhibition spans the years 2009 to the present, and represents my evolving interest in fragmentation and the dissolution of the whole into singular, independent parts. The idea arose as I visited ancient ruins in Italy,Turkey, Mexico and the Southwestern U.S. As well as these ancient sites, I find the demolition sites that I pass en route to my studio to be fascinating. Some of the paintings are loosely based on photographs of these sites. In my mind, there is a connection between these construction sites and the ancient ruins I love to visit. Both exist in a dreamlike space, neither here nor there, but in between.

In addition, my influences include Italian Baroque ceiling paintings, the preserved fragments of Roman fresco,Italian mosaics, pixilation, and process painting.

These diverse influences hold in common the themes of fragmentation and transition. The question is whether these fragments are nostalgic reminders of the past, or the beginnings of a new form. The answer is never clear, and is always interesting to me.”

- Sydney Yeager

Texas Hill Country #1
on The New York Times
31 Places to Go This Summer

"Who needs Europe? The Texas Hill Country, west of Austin and north of San Antonio, might be the next best thing to crossing the Atlantic. The region is lush, colorful and, unlike much of the pancake-flat state, dotted with beautiful green hills that are evocative of Tuscany or the south of France. Moreover, the region is speckled with 22 wineries that buzz with food and music festivals year round. And towns like Fredericksburg offer a taste of the Old World, with German-style biergartens and schnitzelhauser. "
