"Ashland’s Old-Fashioned 4th of July - Be Active, Live Healthy!”.
This Celebration, now over 100 years old, is what makes Ashland a “great small town to live in.” The event begins with a run organized by the Ashland Parks & Recreation Department, followed by a Parade enjoyed by an estimated 20,000 spectators beginning at 10:00am that day. After the parade concludes, there are over one hundred booths in Lithia Park featuring food, crafts, information booths and a Family Activity Zone while bands, including the Ashland City Band perform all afternoon at the Lithia Park Bandshell. Then, enjoy spectacular Fireworks beginning at dusk which are visible all over town.
We look forward to seeing you at this year’s event! For event questions or vendor information, contact the Ashland Chamber at (541) 482-3486.
