The Winter Fine Arts Festival is the largest annual showcase of Ashland area grades 6-12 fine & visual arts, and the primary public fundraiser for AHAA. The event features art exhibits, live music and theater performances, as well as a catered dinner created by AHS Culinary Arts. Exhibits showcase student programs in woodworking, textiles, culinary arts, fine art, photography, digital design, band, orchestra, choir, dance, and theater.
The 32nd WFAF was Friday, Dec 8, 2023
Normally an in-person event, the 29th and 30th annual Winter Fine Arts Festival (WFAF) were presented virtually due to the pandemic. The event is typically the 2nd Friday in December. The event features fine arts from Ashland Middle School (AMS) and Ashland High School (AHS), fiber arts from AHS, musical ensemble performances from AMS and AHS, AHS Theatre skits and monologues, and solo musical performances.
The virtual events were a big success, but everyone enjoyed returning to a live, in-person event in the Mountain Avenue Theatre in Ashland in 2022.
The COVID-19 pandemic created huge technical challenges for ensemble directors, but it pushed everyone to explore creative ways to use technology to keep social distancing while still producing quality material.
