Held the fourth weekend of March, small-town Ashburn welcomes visitors to the Fire Ant Festival, but not the ants themselves. Known for its wacky and off-the-wall activities, the festival offers family oriented fun for all ages. Activities include the fire ant calling contest, the giant fire ant maze, carnival, arts and crafts, fireworks, bands, 5K run and 1-mile fun run, BBQ cook off, and much more!

The dates of the 2023 Festival are
the evening of Friday, March 24th
and all day on Saturday, March 25th, 2023. ​
