Even with the cancellation of The Shakespeare Festival this year, the local Ashland businesses are still excited to welcome you to our town. Each weekend, the Ashland business community has different specials and promotions going on. Each weekend, the downtown plaza is closed to traffic to provide a more pedestrian friendly atmosphere. There is also enough space to socially distance while shopping, dining and exploring! The Bard’s Inn Hotel appreciates the Ashland Chamber of Commerce for creating the Ashland Summer Celebration to support local businesses and keep the Ashland economy open.
The 2020 OSF Season that was previously scheduled to begin in September, was cancelled due to COVID-19. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival has been producing world class shows for 85 years. We hope that the theatre will be back to our stages in 2021.
