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 infamous Manty Hose contest, a carnival, arts and crafts, fireworks, bands, 5K run and 1-mile fun run, BBQ cook off, and much more!
The dates of the 2024 Festival are
the evening of Friday, March 22nd
and all day on Saturday, March 23rd, 2024
