Founders’ Day Walk in Fredericksburg on Jun 8th

The Volkssportverein Friedrichsburg walking club will be hosting a Founders’ Day Walk in Fredericksburg on Saturday, June 8th. This walk honors Reverend Kenn Knopp, a Fredericksburg native, who organized the first volksmarch in America in 1976. It took place in Fredericksburg, the town which he loved so well.

The photo above was taken by Martin Callahan on the walk route at this same event in 2023.

The start point for this walk is at the Kinder Halle in the Marktplatz in the middle of Fredericksburg. Walkers may register for the walk between 8:00 and 11:00 AM, and they must be finished by 2:00 PM.
