In February of each year, since 1917, sled dogs and their owners descend on the small community to participate in the annual Ashton Dog Derby. Spectators and participants alike enjoy dog sled races, celebrity races, junior dog sled races, weight pulls and various other activities. The miscellaneous activities, as well as the start and the finish of the dog sled races, take place downtown! Winter fun for everyone, regardless of your age!
