Educating, Inspiring, Celebrating since 1988


Did you know that ArtsLIVE! is the longest and continuously active performing arts nonprofit organization in the Fredericksburg region?

This year we celebrate our 33rd year of promoting and supporting the performing arts—theatre, dance, choral and instrumental music of all kinds!


ArtsLIVE! is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Produced in 2010 by Ugly Chair Productions, Our Town’s Best Kept Secret! highlights ArtsLIVE!'s (formerly Fredericksburg Festival of the Performing Arts) efforts in promoting the performing arts in the Fredericksburg area.
