Fort Ashby Days this weekend

May 4th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

The Friends of Ashby’s Fort will be dedicating their new visitor’s center when the town celebrates the annual Fort Ashby Days on Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5. The center, located in a separate building from the fort, is linked by a newly-placed walkway featuring memorial bricks purchased by supporters of the fort. Fort Ashby Days is a town-wide event featuring entertainment, arts and crafts, a parade and more, in addition to tours of the fort and living history presentations.  Saturday events kick off at 9 a.m. with a craft fair and food concessions at Trinity United Methodist Church on Dans Run Road. The grand feature parade is scheduled for 10 a.m., and will move from the fairgrounds onto Route 28, traveling south and turning left at the light to end at Ashby’s Fort. Craftspeople and traders will be open for business beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the fort.
