The Robert M. and Janet L. Archer Auditorium is a new state-of-the-art performance venue opened April 19, 2015. The auditorium was funded entirely by supporters of the Ashland Symphony Orchestra and citizens of the Ashland City School District.
Hugo Young Theatre is a proscenium house that seats 724 and is used for many of the Ashland University theatre department's main stage and student productions, the music department's major concerts, Ashland Symphony Orchestra performances and other campus activities. The Ashland Symphony Orchestra is grateful for AU’s support in providing this facility as an in-kind donation.
The Worship Center at Grace Church is the perfect venue to feature Ashland Symphony Orchestra chamber pieces. Concerts here are general admission and seating is in angled pews on a sloped floor. The Ashland Symphony Orchestra is grateful to Ashland Grace Church for providing this facility for a minimal donation.
This grand facility was donated to the City of Ashland by Mrs. Kate Myers in Memory of her husband Guy Chase Myers. Following parking instructions is the story of the Band Shell's creation.
Parking is available on Parkside Drive and adjacent side streets. Some parking is available behind the Band Shell but should be reserved, if possible, for audience members needing handicap parking. Come early and get ice cream at Yoder’s Red Barn, 428 Parkside Drive.
Built in 1909, the opera house interior remains largely unchanged. The mosaic tile floor in the entryway is intact, as well as, the arched ticket window, and lobby doors and arched portal into the auditorium. The original woodwork includes fluted pilasters, moldings, and a staircase with fluted newel and matching balusters. Although in need of repair, all are original. The opera house auditorium retains its double balconies, boxes, and distinctive floral and swag ornamentation.
Great beer. Great Food. All served within the historic heart of our great hometown. Which is a great place for families, friends—both new and old—to gather together and share great times. To raise a glass and share a meal.
Locally known as "The Farmers Market Church", this venue features a large, level parking lot that is easily accessible from Claremont Avenue, Broad Street, and Laurel Avenue. The covered Broad Street Entrance is handicap accessible with an elevator just inside the entrance at ground level.
The site of the annual Beethoven’s Fifth – 5 K is located at the corner of Claremont Avenue and Baney Road/Township Road 1153. The Cheyenne Spidel Memorial Pavilion is located at the northeast side of the fairgrounds near Gate 5.
