Events and Festivals
Ada embraces every season with fun for all ages.
In September, the Harvest and Herb Festival draws people from throughout the region for a parade, homemade food, handcrafted items, fresh herbs and produce, music, and activities.
During the holidays, Ada is bedecked with lights and decorations. Merry on Main, the first Monday in December, brings Santa, hot chocolate, goodies, gift wrapping and more to Depot Park. The Ada Chamber of Commerce and Wilson Football created a new community tradition – the Made in Ada Wilson Football Festival. Held the day before the Super Bowl attendees can enjoy a tailgate party, guest speakers, movies, games and music.
The summer months feature the Farmers & Merchants Picnic in War Memorial Park, and the Lima Symphony Orchestra celebrates the Fourth of July with a free “Patriotic Pops” concert on the Ohio Northern University campus.
