Fredericksburg Parent and Family is an award-winning local parenting magazine for expectant moms and dads and parents of children from birth through the teen years. Now in its 19th year, FredParent has grown into a full multi-media resource for parents in the region. Our monthly print publication has expanded both in the number of pages and in the “look” of the magazine; we have the most active website in the region for parents, one of the region’s most liked and active Facebook pages, a highly valued weekly family calendar e-newsletter, an extensive listing of local business directories, sending readers and website viewers to many types of activities and service providers and some of the best special family events in town.
What’s even better is all of this has been verified by an independent audit from the Circulation Verification Council, which confirmed that FredParent’s print magazine reaches 70% of the families in our region with children under the age of 18. We distribute an average of 8,000 copies in more than 500 locations with a 90% pick up rate. Additionally, we have EXCLUSIVE distribution in all Quantico Welcome Aboard Packages and we appear in all area maternity wards, new mother packages, prenatal packages and more.
Our local writers examine and discuss education, safety, health care, the arts, family entertainment and child care in the greater Fredericksburg and Rappahannock region. The monthly calendar, published both in the magazine and on the web site, is the most extensive available. Moms, dads, grandparents, and caregivers of kids of all ages find activities, exhibits, and entertainment available throughout the month. Plus, our FREE weekly "Cool Things To Do" E-newsletter delivers our calendar editor's top picks into thousands of in-boxes every Wednesday and Saturday.
As we continue to build the best NETwork for moms and dads around FXBG, we encourage you to contribute ideas, information, suggestions, and stories to help us make Fredericksburg Parent and Family a truly valuable parenting tool. Follow us on social media to get the latest parenting and event news.
