If you mean Arbutus Event (not Fredericksburg-area ?) I nominate the Arbutus Arts Festival of course!

Arbutus Vol Fire Dept Aux Fall Festival and Children's Safety Day - This one is so important for the families and children especially to know what to do in an emergency. And they also get to have fun doing it!!!!

The Arts Festival is to expensive to be a vendor and to be a consumer. The Firemen,s Fair is the best event for the community.

I like the 4th of July parade! Even the PG-13 version of 2011.
