The Celebrate Ashburnham Committee is being formed by the Select Board to organize the first annual Celebrate Ashburnham Street Fair to be held on a Saturday in Ashburnham on Main Street in 2022. A portion of Main Street will be closed to all traffic by turning that area into a pedestrian mall with local vendors lining Main Street.
The committee will consist of 6 Members appointed by the Select Board. This will be a one-year appointment.
The primary mission of this committee is to promote local business awareness, and begin to build capacity to help grow the Ashburnham economy in particular the creative economy (profit and non-profit) leveraging Ashburnham's creative assets in a more productive fashion, including our educational institutions.
The committee will work closely with local businesses, Ashburnham Cultural Council, the regional school district, Cushing Academy, New Dawn Arts Center, the Economic Development Commission, other Ashburnham boards, committees, and commissions as well as local service organizations.
