Labor Day Celebration

Since 1968, Ridgeway has been a proud host to the annual Labor Day Celebration, or Party with the Ghost, as the locals like to call it. This event offers something for everyone, from the Craft Show to the Run with the Ghost in the morning, to the parade and John’s Famous Chicken BBQ, to local live music all day into the night.

The 2018 celebration marked 50 years of this event full of local pride, and despite the afternoon rains, party-goers found plenty of reasons to come, and stay, throughout the day.

The 2019 event will take place on Sunday, September 1st, and we would love to hear your thoughts as we begin planning! From children’s games to local music, input from the community is welcome and encouraged.

We are actively seeking volunteers, parade entries, and donations to help us continue a Ridgeway tradition in 2019. Please send us a message by clicking the button below to get involved.

We couldn’t do this without the help and generosity of the community. Thank you to our sponsors and volunteers for the continued success of the Labor Day Celebration!
