To Hold a Special Event in the Town of Ashland

Special Events are an important part of life in the Town of Ashland. There are many Special Events in Town throughout the year! From fundraising walks and runs to Train Day, and Light Up the Tracks, there is never a shortage of fun things to do in the Town of Ashland! And who could forget the hometown fun of the Fourth of July parade!

Festival Permit Application 

Please this form if you plan to conduct any parade, musical or entertainment festival in the Town.

As a rule of thumb, an event will require a permit if amplified music is involved and there are over 50 people planned to be in attendance.

The festival permit process does not apply to the following:
     Any event that is completely held within an enclosed, permanent, structure;
     Any such gathering conducted within the confines of a family, theme or recreation
     park, wherein non-musical entertainment is provided on a regular basis;
     Wedding receptions.
     The playing of non-amplified instruments.

The completed application must be filed with the Ashland Police Department at least 21 days before the date of event. Please contact the Ashland Police Department if you have any questions about any of this information, and thank you for your interest in the Town of Ashland!
