The Corn Exchange plays host to two events during The Ashford Carnival and Shopping Week. The first, the crowning of the Carnival Queen, takes place outside the building, watched by a large crowd. The second, the Grand Baby Show, takes place in the main hall where the young entrants are entertained by a man dressed as a baby.
