Every year four major festivals are held in downtown Fries; The Henry Whitter Festival in May, Catch the Fun Crooked Road Extravaganza in June, Festival by the River in October, The New River Trail Races in October and Christmas on the Mountain in December. We also host the bicycle part of the Senior Olympics in June and the Duathlon in August.
