Join the Fun! Participate in the 2023 4th of July Festivities
We recently announced that the theme for this year’s 4th of July Celebration is We Thrive Together! We are excited to celebrate the 4th with our annual Parade, park activities and music at the bandshell. We are happy to welcome back many of the booth spaces in Lithia Park on that day. Parade and park activity applications are ready to go so click here to participate. All applications are due by June 16th and our limited booth spaces are on a first come first served basis so apply today! If you have any questions, please contact Shanealee at Shanealee@ashlandchamber.com or 541-482-3486 ext. 100.

In order to produce this community-wide celebration, the Ashland Chamber must raise money for event costs such as permits, insurance, security and more. Your business will receive valuable benefits by being a sponsor of the 4th. Contact Dana Preston at members@ashlandchamber.com or 541-482-3486 ext. 104 for more information. If you are a community member and would like to make a donation to support the 4th of July activities through the Ashland Chamber Foundation, a 501-C3, Dana can help facilitate that gift as well. Thank you for your consideration and we are looking forward to the fun!
Chamber office hours and Plaza Information Booth
The Chamber office is expanding its hours back to 9:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. Currently, we are planning extended hours starting Memorial Day Weekend at the Plaza Information Booth. If you know of someone who would like to give back to Ashland by volunteering to serve our visitors and inquiring residents, please contact Shanealee@ashlandchamber.com. She is building the calendar and planning the volunteer training for May.
