Where is the festival?
This year’s festival takes place right on Main Street in the center of North Canton. It extends from the North Canton Public Library to Pav’s Creamery.
Where is parking?
There are several public parking lots in the area (behind Main Street Grille, at the library, at the Hoover District, North Canton Middle School) and on streets in the surrounding neighborhoods. North Canton is very walkable, and we love when residents stroll over from home. (It’s one of the things we love most about our city!)
Is there food?
YES! The festival offers several dining options. There’s traditional fair food, pizza from the Sol Pie booth, fancy food truck food, and local stops such as Main Street Grille, Sprinkle City and Pav’s.
What about drinks?
Our vendors have you covered with lemonade stands, sodas and traditional summer beverages!
Wait, were you asking about adult drinks . . .
2019 introduces the Main Street Festival Beer Garden. Look for the Royal Docks Brewing truck in the Hoover Lawn. Offerings will be: Downsteam Jam Dark Cherry Sour (Royal Docks), Pendragon RareWit (Royal Docks), Leatherhead IPA (Royal Docks), Collar Blind IPA (Spider Monkey), Golden Ale (Shale Brewing).
You can also grab drinks (both alcoholic and non) at local stops including Main Street Grille and Pav’s Creamery. Don’t forget about the adult slushies and milkshakes at Pav’s! Visit Main Street Grille for a glass of wine, martini or your favorite bourbon. Want a margarita? El Rincon has the best in town!
Are there things for kids to do?
Absolutely! Kiddos will have a blast in our inflatables sponsored by Cyber Shift Technologies. They’ll love the North Canton YMCA Game Zone. Zion UCC will host an awesome Touch A Truck event in their parking lot Saturday. Also Saturday, the Little Art Gallery of the North Canton Library is hosting an arts fest in Bitzer Park complete with squirt gun painting and stilts walkers. Vendors will have items appealing to children. And nationally loved Rick Smith, Jr. will bring his magic and illusion show to North Canton Sunday. There’s plenty to do for ALL ages!
Who are The Shootouts and why should I be excited to see them?
The Shootouts play Saturday night from 7 to 9 p.m. Their debut album “Quick Draw” is an effortless blend of high-energy honky-tonk and traditional country music mixed with touches of Americana and western swing. The band marries a blend of Roy Orbison and Bob Wills with the barn-burning sounds of Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives and Dwight Yoakam. The combination offers a welcome throwback to sounds that flowed out of Nashville, Texas and California in country music’s golden years.
Composed of lead-singer Ryan Humbert, guitarist Brian Poston, bassist Ryan McDermott, drummer Dylan Gomez, backing vocalist Emily Bates — with longtime sideman Al Moss on pedal steel — The Shootouts have shared the stage with a wide range of artists, including Sheryl Crow, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives, Lake Street Dive, Jim Lauderdale, Radney Foster, Zac Brown Band, Soul Asylum, Chris Isaak and more.
“Quick Draw” was recorded in Brooklyn, NY with producers Luca Benedetti and Jim Campilongo (Cake, Norah Jones, The Little Willies) and is available now at www.shootoutsmusic.com, Amazon, Target, Spotify, iTunes and more.
When is the Farmer’s Market?
Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will be set up on West Maple near the Huntington Bank. Vendors will offer locally grown and/or produced fruit, vegetables, dairy, flowers, meats, coffee, bread, soaps and more!
Yoga at the Main Street Festival?
Yep! North Canton local, Karen Dhyanchand will lead a yoga class each day. Bring a beach towel (it’s easier to carry) or yoga mat and enjoy Main Street Festival yoga Saturday at 11:15 a.m. and Sunday at 11 a.m.
Who puts the Main Street Festival on?
The North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce organizes the festival with a whole lot of community support. This year’s partners include W.W. Schaub Electric, The City of North Canton, the Little Art Gallery of the North Canton Public Library, the North Canton YMCA, MissionView Church, The Chapel of North Canton and Zion UCC. The Chamber is also fortunate to have several financial sponsors who make the event possible!
