The City of Ashland and Northland College are teaming up to host festivities around Book Across the Bay this year. You can expect the same party at the finish line of Book Across the Bay—plus more! We’ll have a sledding hill*, kids activities, craft market, food vendors, fire pits, and performances from your favorite local musicians at the beer garden both nights.
This event is open to the public.
All events are happening in and around the Book Across the Bay tent on the Ashland Marina parking lot. Attendees are encouraged to park up the street on St. Claire Avenue. Cash is encouraged and appreciated.
Winter Fest is scheduled to happen regardless of the status of this year’s Book Across the Bay.
