The Ashfield Fall Festival is a favorite event of Western Mass locals. Always falling on the weekend around the best foliage, the Ashfield Fall Festival is a time to come together on the Ashfield Town Commons in true New England fashion. Come out to Ashfield this Saturday, October 7th and Sunday, October 8th, 2023 and you will understand why this event has returned year after year for over 50 years. There will be music, artistry, games, and food, especially everyone’s favorite, fried dough with maple cream.
The Ashfield Town Commons comes alive during the festival, with people everywhere, rows of vendors, and live music performances. This year’s lineup includes The Hilltown Ham Hocks, Cloudbelly Duo, and Dan Lederer. You can see the full lineup here.
At the Ashfield Fall Festival, you will find a variety of arts and crafts for sale and on display. There is everything from jewelry to illustrations, woodcraft, clothing, and more. Visit the Upper Town Hall, the Town Common Tent, and Curtis Corner to see all the different works of art and chat with the artisans themselves.
There is always plenty to eat at the Ashfield Fall Festival. This year you can expect to find all your seasonal favorites such as pumpkin donuts, apple pie, and maple sno-cones. There will also be heartier foods such as chowders, soups, chili, grinders, and more.
The Ashfield Fall Festival also serves as a fundraiser for the Fall Festival Scholarship Fund. Pick up an Ashfield Fall Festival T-Shirt and your purchase will go directly to this fund. These scholarships are awarded annually by the nonprofit Ashfield Citizens Scholarship & Community Fund organization.
