Train Rides: All Aboard the Ashland Express
New to the Ashland Christmas Village this year is the Ashland Express, a fully operational, ride-on train that will take you on a magical journey through the village. Hop aboard and enjoy the sights and sounds of the holiday season as you chug along the tracks. It's a train ride the whole family can enjoy.

Storytime with Mrs. Claus
Mrs. Claus has her own chateau at Ashland Christmas Village, and she's inviting you to join her for a special Storytime session. Sit back, relax, and listen as Mrs. Claus reads one of her favorite Christmas stories. It's a cozy and enchanting experience that will warm your heart.
Everything Else You Love
In addition to the new attractions, Ashland Christmas Village still has all the things you've come to love over the years. Delicious cookies and hot chocolate will keep you warm and satisfied. Face paintings will bring out the holiday spirit with Christmas-themed graphics. And the entire event is made possible by the generous donations from the public, sponsorships from local businesses, and the dedication of hundreds of volunteers.
Parking and Temperature Notes
Before you head to Ashland Christmas Village, keep a few things in mind. The county lot next to The Corner Park will be closed, so plan your parking accordingly. Public parking is available along Main Street and City Lot B. Also, be sure to dress appropriately for the weather, especially your children. While organizers try their best to keep things moving smoothly, there may be some wait times.
Ashland Christmas Village is a volunteer-led and donation-sponsored event that takes place during the month of December in Downtown Ashland. It's a true community effort to spread holiday cheer and create lasting memories. So don't miss out on the fun!
