The rhythm and blues will be rolling into downtown Canton, Ohio, this June for the annual Canton Blues Fest. This 2-day affair – this year celebrating 10 years of rockin’ and rollin’ – boasts major musicmakers on Friday June 10 and Saturday June 11.
Presented by the Canton Development Partnership (a department of the Canton Regional Chamber) the free outdoor summer jam is happening in downtown Canton with incredible headliners guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Michael Burks and Chicago guitar-hero Ronnie Baker Brooks, and music all day from noon to 10.30pm
Boogie woogie your way downtown, kickback with a refreshing, ice cold drink, delicious midway fare, super cool tunes and great friends, and enjoy the best outdoor music festival north of Memphis! Want the best seats in town? Buy a two-day Blues Fest VIP Pass online for $75 and take advantage of FREE food, beer and incredible views of the stage.
Canton and Stark County lay claim to national attractions such as the Professional Football Hall of Fame, the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum, and the National First Ladies Historical Site, but the hidden treasures of Ohio's Amish Country and the quaint shops of Hartville and Canal Fulton also entice tourists of all ages. Every weekend is filled with exciting events such as the Yankee Peddler Festival, Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival and OHSAA State Football Championship to name just a few.
