Every year four major festivals are held in downtown Fries; The Henry Whitter Festival in May, Catch the Fun Fishing Festival in June, Festival by the River in September, The New River Trail 50K in October and Christmas on the Mountain in December. We also host the bicycle part of the Senior Olympics June 6th and the Duathlon August 2nd.
