Our community is excited to once again bring you the events that have helped make Ashland an autumn destination. From local food and crafts to performing arts and festive previews of the holiday season, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Ashland County Fair
Once a year, the people in our area come together to celebrate their talents, accomplishments, and community spirit at the fun-filled Ashland County Fair.

Autumn Fiber Festival
Have enough fiber in your cultural diet? The Autumn Fiber Festival is excited to return for its 8th annual event at Ashland County Fairgrounds. Local fiber producers, craftsmen, and artists come together to show the importance of natural fibers to our community with demonstrations, education, and sales of their work. See the best in weaving, spinning, crocheting, rug-hooking, and more. This event offers an excellent opportunity to buy some Christmas gifts—including for yourself!
