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.
Unwind in the summers with Music on Main. Live music events at Depot Park are often paired with chicken barbeques or ice cream socials. Nothing is more refreshing than summertime in a small town!
The summer months feature the Farmers & Merchants Picnic in the 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.
