FXBG Diverse City 2021 was a 5 month-long program from the Department of Economic Development and Tourism that aimed to shed light on the owners and stories behind the Fredericksburg businesses that we love. Each week the department featured a diverse Fredericksburg business on the Fredericksburg Economic Development and Tourism Facebook and Instagram pages while following monthly themes:
February: Black-owned businesses (for Black History Month)
March: Women-owned businesses (for Women’s History Month)
May: Small businesses (for National Small Business Month)
June: LGBTQIA+ businesses (for Pride Month)
While each post falls into a theme, support for these businesses should reach beyond their recognized months. However you can, in ways big or small, support diverse Fredericksburg businesses throughout the year.
Get to know the owners behind the businesses we love in FXBG.
