The primary parking area is on the east end of Main Street, where donations to the Ashfield Fall Festival Scholarship Fund are gratefully accepted. Other town organizations host parking areas for a fee/donation to their organizations: Ashfield Historical Society and Ashfield Community Preschool have lots on Baptist Corner Road; Ashfield Trails and Parks Commission host parking at Upper Belding Park on the west end of Main Street/Rte. 116, closer to Route 112. When approaching town, please drive carefully as there are many pedestrians. A limited number of handicapped parking spots are marked on South Street; there is also an area in front of the fire station where passengers with limited mobility can be dropped off, with the driver then proceeding to designated fair parking.

Dogs

This festival, which takes place on both public and private property, attracts large crowds. We ask that you leave your furry friends at home for the safety and comfort of all. Thank you.

ATMs

Cash is available at Neighbor’s store and we will also be featuring ATMs in the main parking lot and the town common.
